Officials will take to the waterways in an attempt to improve traffic in baton rouge.

The media and local parish presidents will be touring potential areas for the Baton Rouge Loop project via the Mississippi River.

The loop is a 4 billion dollar proposal --- city leaders say it would divert traffic from other congested roadways in the city.

To fund the highway, officials say they're considering making it a toll road. But they're not sure whether it would be run privately or by the government.
