The $125 million project to build flyover ramps for a direct connection between Interstate 10 and Louis Armstrong International Airport in Kenner is facing delays — again. The Louisiana Department of Transporation and Development said the flyovers should be open "by summer 2023, weather permitting." That's a revision of their previous estimate pegging completion at early 2023. Meanwhile, the opening of the new "diamond diverging interchange" on Loyola Drive, beneath the I-10 overpass in Kenner, will be postponed until after the flyovers are complete, according to DOTD.
