It's no surprise to drivers that traffic in Baton Rouge is a big problem. It's even earned Baton Rouge a spot on this year's list of the Top 100 Congested Cities.

The study focuses on traffic speed and congestion levels on roads in the area. Over the past few months, the city and state have started dozens of construction projects throughout East Baton Rouge Parish.

Experts say poor city planning is to blame and now it's a game of catch-up.
