BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Motorists who use Interstate 10 between the I-10/12 split and Siegen Lane in Baton Rouge will have an additional lane in each direction starting Monday.
The work began in January 2009.
It was initially set to be finished by late 2011.
But state officials announced that year the work was 10 months behind schedule.
The state also replaced the lead contractor, Austin Bridge & Road Inc., with Boh Bros. Construction of New Orleans.
At one time officials thought the $86.2 million project might be finished by the end of 2012, and then by January of this year.
But a variety of delays, including heavy rains last month, pushed back the completion date.
About 73,000 drivers use the corridor daily.
