Working on I-10 (especially fixing the east banks side of the Mississippi River bridge) is a good project. Baton Rouge is a lush city full of beautiful trees, and the I-10 widening project should do everything practical to preserve the trees along our roads. This is especially true for the trees and greenery that is maintained by Baton Rouge Green and supported by the Baton Rouge community. In the event that trees must be removed, this project must include the replacement of an equal number of trees in the scope of the project and budget accordingly. The Baton Rouge community voluntarily paid for and tends those trees because that’s the kind of community we want. This project must respect and uphold the values and the investment of our community.
Thank you for your comments.
