NEW ORLEANS, La. – Earlier today, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development opened the westbound U.S. 90B (West Bank Expressway) Manhattan Boulevard down-ramp (Exit 6B) completing Phase IB of the $35.3 million Macarthur Interchange Improvements project.

The project required the demolition and relocation of the previously existing on-ramp in order to accommodate the new westbound exit ramp onto the service road, just east of Maple Avenue.
