The maps
Louisiana has folklore concerning its music, its food, its people, its politicians, and its geography. So why not its roads.
There are several people who have already written about the I-410 proposal, so I will direct you to their work:

However, none of them have any visual material showing the proposed route. So this is where I step in.

Regional map (centered on Lake Pontchatrain) with all the constructed/proposed interstates for Greater New Orleans as of 1972. (Click on map for larger scale)

Color coded (by me) map showing the various alternative and suggested routing for I-410 around the south of New Orleans (Click on map for larger scale)

Normally there is some aerial photography of the intended route. Unfortunately, the plans I had access to only had a badly faded "blueprint of the middle section of the proposed I-410. Not worth using in my opinion. Sorry.
