The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) and the Baton Rouge Recreation and Park Commission (BREC) invite you to an open house event to offer input on potential amenities in the Old South Baton Rouge community. DOTD and BREC will offer community connection options for feedback related to a greenway corridor and park improvements alongside and beneath I-10 through Old South Baton Rouge. Also offered will be preference polling of designs for a new I-10 bridge over City Park Lake.

DOTD will present design options for greenway amenities in the I-10 corridor between Myrtle Avenue and Dalrymple Drive, while BREC will present information about pending master planning efforts for Expressway Park and E. Polk Street Park. Together, the greenway and park improvements will offer the public a bicycle and pedestrian connection linking the Downtown Greenway with the University Lakes.

Comments and questions may be submitted during the community open house, or sent via mail to Franklin Associates, I-10 Improvements Project, 250 S. Foster Dr., Baton Rouge, LA 70806, or via email to info@i10br.com.
