I-10 Segment 1 Begins

DOTD begins improvements within Segment 1

Segment 1 of this interstate widening project extends from the I-10 / I-110 interchange in downtown Baton Rouge eastward to include the Acadian Thruway interchange. Stage 1 construction within Segment 1 began in February 2023 and will continue through 2024. This work includes the permanent construction of a westbound portion of the I-10 bridge over City Park Lake, the temporary widening of I-10 westbound from Acadian Thruway to I-110, and the creation of a service road on the eastbound side extending Braddock Avenue to Dalrymple Drive. Stage 1 construction also includes permanent widening of the westbound flyover curve at I-110 towards the Mississippi River Bridge.
The above-described work through the end of 2024 will be visible alongside I-10 through Baton Rouge, but is not expected to have significant impacts upon interstate traffic.
