It is very clear that the way to get your own exit off of I-210 is to open a casino. With a new Casino being built as we speak ... a new exit is also being built. This construction project comes with a $80 million price tag!

The first phase of the construction is the Cove Lane Exit. I am not sure how that is going to work. It sure seems at this point that it will be a rather abrupt turn off of the interstate. This exit will connect with a road being constructed by the casino. That road will parallel I-210 to the north of the interstate and connect with West Prien Lake Road to the east and to the new Casino to the west. Could all this work be because the new casino does not want it's customers to drive by the existing casino? Well this is Louisiana.
