Please save as many mature trees as possible during the widening of 1-10 in BTR. Out of town friends praise BTR for the canopy of trees surrounding parts of I-10.
Please budget a suffice to amount to replace any destroyed/damaged in this process.
Please plan to work 24 hours a day like the outstanding work done by the contractor years ago at the I-10/12 split. They got millions in incentive awards. Great for all. Work around neighborhoods at night time.
Thanks and best wishes.


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