Comment: 7. Will there be a signature bridge replacing the Nairn Street Bridge? Response: The Nairn Street bridge will be replaced as a result of this project. The concepts are to have a signature bridge with pedestrian and bicycle paths.

Comment: Nairn Street Bridge: conceptual renderings look great, but concerned it won’t end up like that. Green barriers and spacious multi use paths need to stay! Response: Thank you for your comments.

Comment: My concern is the Nairn overpass bridge. On the display panels, there were two of those panels, the right-hand one at the bottom showed a scene with concrete barrier walls and a living internal barrier, I think they were calling it. Do not do that. That — just don’t. That would be insane to […]

Comment: 7. Valley Street/Nairn Dr. Bridge. This is another important thoroughfare for the neighborhood that keeps traffic off of S. Acadian and College. How is the replacement of this bridge going to be handled? The new bridge will need to have a separated pedestrian/bike pathway. Are motifs going to be added such as the Wisner […]

Comment: We love the Nairn Bridge concept drawings. What is the suggested alternative route for bikes/pedestrians during the time it takes to rebuild the Nairn Bridge? Response: Thank you for your comments. Conceptual alternative routes for traffic using the Nairn Bridge will be developed, it is not know if these detours would accomodate pedestrian and […]

Comment: I was told at one of the focus group meetings that requirements were necessary to meet for a sound wall. And studies would extend through past the environmental phase. At the public meeting, we were told that federal funding was approved for a sound wall along Estates Road. Does this mean that we have […]

Pamela Baker

Comment: This is a short sighted plan. A band aid and waste of money. We need a bypass. You will take property and businesses and just push the problem down the road. Response: During the Stage 0 Feasibility Study for this project, alternative regional transportation improvements were considered including a new southern Mississippi River Bridge […]

Philipa Blair

Comment: Is this a done deal or will Baton Rouge citizens be able to end this construction? A concerned WBR citizen. Response: DOTD intends to move forward with the completion of the Environmental process.

Comment: This is a waste of time and money Response: Thank you for your comment.

Patrick Mascarella

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 […]
