Congressman Garret Graves argued there needs to be more solid communication among traffic engineers and state lawmakers about planning construction projects in I-10 through Baton Rouge.

Graves, the newly-elected member of the U.S. House of Representatives, appeared on WBRZ's morning news program, 2une-In, Monday to discuss possible projects on the interstate. Graves, of Baton Rouge, said he hopes to develop a project timetable based on key traffic areas.

"We really need to let the metrics drive the process and get the politics out," Graves said. "That's how we got here," insinuating interstate troubles that plague the morning and afternoon drives daily.

"Instead of allowing politics to decide which projects move forward, where money goes; letting the time saved in traffic, per dollar invested... be a major metric criteria that we use," he said.
