The purpose of this study was to identify and evaluate treatments and strategies to mitigate traffic congestion on the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge in Baton Rouge, LA. Based on VISSIM simulation results, combination of supply- and demand-oriented measures will be required. Rehabilitation of the old bridge on US-190 and the existing US-190/US-61 corridor, overall demand management of I-10 EB traffic, reduction in percent trucks traveling eastbound on I-10 during the A.M. peak, and ramp metering at the on-ramp west of the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge appear to be feasible and effective solutions.
