|Interstate bypass alternatives
Twelve Graduate students at Louisiana State University
used various (individual) methods to select alternative by-pass routes
for Interstate 49.
Scoring points were awarded (or subtracted) based on a
Geographic "surface" that was placed under each students road alternative.
The student with the best score, based on the least number
of subsurface points (divided by the total linear feet of each road),
won the competition.
The student bypass alternatives are shown in Purple, Dark
Yellow, Dark Green, Dark Blue, and Violet. Existing secondary roads
are shown in Brown, and major arterial roads are seen as Light Green.
