Comment: I am opposed to the widening of the Interstate in the Overpass and Lakes area. The construction will cut through the core of the city, create blight and diminish the quality of life in an historic neighborhood. The “benefits” of travel time do not compare to the costs not only of the project, but […]
Comment: Hello – I live in University Gardens and I am opposed to this expansion. If, however, widening I-10 at Perkins is inevitable, then please make plans to creatively develop the existing and new areas under the overpass to improve outcomes for our neighborhood. Add to the charm of the area and mitigate the property […]
Comment: The project as proposed will do very little to alleviate the daily congestion currently being experienced. The real problem is associated with the lack of sufficient vehicle capacity of the bridge crossing the Mississippi River. Until an expanded or supplemental bridge is completed, there can be no suitable solution to the local traffic problem […]
Comment: Widening I‐10 without addressing the capacity of the Mississippi River Bridge will be a fruitless, expensive boondoggle. Referencing the I‐10 Open House PowerPoint presentation, August 2018: “Increasing capacity of I‐10 must be a part of a larger multi‐faceted solution” [slide 12]. So, where is the multi‐faceted, larger solution that goes along with the widening? […]
Comment: Until you get more lanes OVER the bridge you will not be able to alleviate traffic woes, all else is window dressing. More lanes to the bridge could worsen traffic woes, as cars would have to merge (again) at base. The new Huey P. Long Bridge in Jefferson Parish is one incredible example of […]
Comment: More pedestrian access under I-10 and around Perkins Road Overpass during and after construction., Response: Pedestrian safety and access both during and after construction are part of the design process. Proposed pedestrian crossings will be included in the complete streets and context sensitive designs to be shown during the public hearings.
Comment: Okay. So one of the questions that I had for Perry outside is regarding the Perkins Road overpass. I have the building that is under the overpass, right adjacent with the big round top building. It’s been there. It’s a restaurant, K Street Grill. K Street Grill. Kalurah Street Grill. And the question that […]

I’m also a principal at Remson, Haley, Herpin Architects here in Baton Rouge and my office is downtown on Government Street. Been living in my neighborhood since 1992.

Comment: 14. What is actions are being taken to ensure customers can still access the businesses in the Perkins Rd. area? Response: DOTD will maintain access to residences and businesses during construction. The specifics of construction access methods will be developed during the design stage.
Comment: 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 […]
Comment: Access to Perkins Road Overpass area businesses shall be maintained at all times. Construction traffic shall not go down residential streets south of Perkins Road unless absolutely necessary. Environmental Inventory Comments: Are City Park and LSU Lakes protected under Section 4f of Dept of Transportation Act? Many significant trees appear to be impacted, both […]
Comment: 14. What actions are being taken to ensure customers can still access the businesses in the Perkins Rd. area? Response: DOTD will maintain access to residences and businesses during construction, but there may be times when access is temporarily unavailable. The specifics of construction access methods will be developed during the design stage.
Comment: Perkins Road Overpass: the “opportunity areas” need to be improvements that benefit people and residents of the area. Do not sell off these areas to the highest bidding developer who only wants to exploit the character of our neighborhood. Give it to BREC! Response: Thank you for your comments.
Comment: Okay. The, the additions that I want to make is that everything I said earlier pre-supposed that the only thing that was going to be done was the, the interstate without looking at the possibilities that — of having to improve the current situation and then adding a new bridge, not instead of, but […]
