Segment 1 Work Underway

Interstate Construction Underway Through Baton Rouge

The I-10 BR project received approval from the US Federal Highway Administration in February of 2021 and has now advanced to construction. When completed, this State Project No. H.004100 will provide an additional 4th lane in each direction and will modernize interchanges, improving safety within this urban corridor. The interstate improvement project begins at the Essen Lane exits on both I-10 and I-12 and proceeds westward across the Mississippi River to the LA 415 (Lobdell) exit in West Baton Rouge parish. Though physically within the overall project corridor, the I-10 and I-12 College Flyover Ramp is a separate contract and design-build project (State Project No. H.013897.)

The project will be constructed in segments. Louisiana DOTD began construction of Segment 1 in February of 2023, working from Acadian Thruway across City Park Lake to the I-110 interchange downtown. This work is anticipated to continue through 2029, with DOTD preserving the current number of interstate travel lanes through the construction corridor for the duration of construction. Intermittent ramp closures and lane shifts will be necessary and notice of these will be provided on this website, via DOTD apps, and through traditional media channels.
