Airline Highway, Baton Rouge, LA

Here's a couple pictures I took not too long ago of this crossing on Airline Highway (Southern crossing) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
It was pouring down the rain on that day so I never got a chance to get more pictures of the crossing, but whenever I get a chance to, when it's a nice day, I'll get more pictures)

Notice that this is an interesting crossing, this is one of those gateless cantilever crossings that happen to use a freeway-like cantilever (You know to put exit signs on)
This crossing also have a total of 11 pairs of lights (7 pairs alone on the freeway-like cantilever)

Guess they decided to slap on a few extra lights over the last couple of years? Looked better the old way in my opinion.

Not only that, but they also decided to replace a Hybrid bell. :OhWell:

I think they added more lights because this is a high traffic road, the picture I took was on a rainy day, if it was a nice day, mostly at rush-hour, you can expect a lot of traffic on this road
