In news that surprised no one, a future corridor of I-49 sign located on Highway 90 recently failed a polygraph examination. For years, these signs have been promising that stretches of Highway 90 would one day be converted into endless miles of smooth interstate, connecting the West Bank of New Orleans through Lafayette and all the way into Arkansas. Estimated at almost 400 miles, this mythical project has literally become the longest running joke in Louisiana history.
The Push Pole recently asked the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development to release an updated estimate of when sections of this proposed corridor would be finished. The document below is what they sent us.
Samuel Delacroix, the polygrapher who administered the exam, stated:
The sign frequently exhibited extreme deception, and I could find no truth in it. I would not expect Highway 90 to be a future corridor for anything except wreckage, despair, and possibly the Gulf Of Mexico. Lord have mercy upon the souls who must traverse this crumbling visage of American infrastructure.
