I-10 Segment 1 Begins

DOTD begins improvements within Segment 1 of the I-10 Project

With the Finding of No Significant Impact by FHWA in early 2021, Segment 1, the first construction segment of Phase I, is now going through final design. This part of the corridor is most challenging because it traverses the heart of Baton Rouge within a constrained footprint. It is a priority because improvements to this segment will provide the greatest benefits to Baton Rouge by providing 8 lanes of Interstate which includes two lanes on I-10 eastbound at the I-110 split. Significant construction is expected to start in early 2023.

DOTD is continuing to engage the public through this final design process. Community meetings will be held to refine plans for Context Sensitive Solutions seeking to mitigate impacts of the interstate to adjacent communities. Informational meetings will offer opportunities to ask questions and submit comments.
