The main detrimental effect of widening is to the Perkins Rd area. Prolonged construction can have a serious effect on businesses in close proximity. This is a thriving area that could suffer greatly with the plans at hand , and should be protected. I have seen many areas where almost all the businesses failed while prolonged construction blocked easy access, also noise and dust, etc.
LA DOTD intends to minimize any adverse impacts to the local businesses and residences in this area during construction of this project.
