It is my understanding that the DOTD is proposing a project to widen I-10 and I-12 through Baton Rouge. While this is a valuable and worthwhile project, the current plan calls for the removal of HUNDREDS of trees and does not include any plans to replace them or to erect noise walls to protect our neighborhood from increased traffic noise.
I currently reside at 5811 Stratford Ave in Baton Rouge and would be opposed to the widening project without provisions for erecting noise barriers to protect our neighborhood, thanks.  


DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
