BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Officials broke ground Thursday on the first phase of the Essen Road widening project, hoping to bring solutions to everyone's traffic nightmares.

The first phase of the project will see the addition of two turning lanes onto I-10 and the addition of lanes to the interstate's on and off ramps.

Officials estimate the entire project to last a year and a half.
