Photo du Jour: I-10/I-610 Split, 27 August 2005--3pm
So we'll all take a weekend trip to Houston . . .
This picture was taken about 3pm on the Saturday afternoon before KTMB crashed the party--the westbound lanes are backed up towards Baton Rouge and the eastbound lanes towards the City are virtually empty. Westbound contraflow of I-10 had just begun about a mile and half from here at the Clearview Parkway interchange. The now infamous 17th Street Canal and entrance to the City of New Orleans is at the crest up ahead.
