Comment: And my comment is on the LA 1 entrance eastbound to, on I-10, to the new bridge. The current design is where the north and southbound LA 1 merges. It’s in a curve and it already backs up as it doesn’t flow well. Even when the bridge is moving and not over capacity, that […]

Comment: Intercoastal bridge -3 lanes – one lane to port allen only. All traffic going to Lafayette and Port Allen could get passed all traffic trying to get on bridge. Extra lane on curve going from bridge to I-10 East. Response: Thank you for your comment. The Intercoastal Bridge is outside of the project limits; […]

Comment: I would like to see a double lane entrance to the bridge from LA 1 all the way to the trusses of the Mississippi River bridge. Response: Thank you for your comment. This alternative concept will be reviewed, if its has merit, any resulting design changes will be shown during the public hearing.

Comment: I was very impressed with the presentation and the maps. I like the overall approach to the project. I do wonder why the Nicholson/Highland exit doesn’t include Washington Street and completely do away with the Washington street exit as it exists or is planned. Washington Street is only 6 blocks down Highland Road. If […]

Comment: 23. And what about hazards to our health due to the noise after construction if the sound wall is added at a later date? 24. What kind of hazards to our health due to vibration of construction? 25. And what about hazards to our health due to vibration after construction with more vehicles passing […]

Comment: So our concern is about traffic coming on 110 from the north wanting to take the Dalrymple exit to get to Knock Knock Children’s Museum. If I’m understanding it right, those — that traffic will need to get off at the Terrace exit and make a jog-over to get on the frontage road. So […]

Comment: The trees are valuable to me and our community. Trees reduce the amount of storm water runoff. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gases from the air and release oxygen. Trees create an ecosystem to provide habitat and food for animals. DOTD should budget for the replacement of all trees that will be […]

Comment: 1) Our city’s roadside trees and green infrastructure are crucial and valuable to me 2) DOTD must budget for the replacement of all trees to be removed as a critical element of the I-10 Widening project budget, not an afterthought Response: DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and […]

Comment: One of the first things large companies wanting to relocate look at is curb appeal of the community. People want to move to places that look nice. The cost/return ratio of simply planting trees is enormous. Please consider the green infrastructure when planning this widening. We have enough stacked against us to pass on […]

Comment: In reference to the widening of interstate 110….Please be sure to include $$$ to replace the trees that will be cut down due to the widening project! This is important to me! Response: DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton […]

Comment: I am writing to express my concerns about the removal of vegetation in order to achieve the desired the I-10 corridor widening. It is imperative that our green infrastructure be preserved where feasible. Baton Rouge Green’s “Living Roadways” initiative has enhanced aesthetic quality of our major corridors and interstates. Any necessary removal of these […]

Comment: I find this proposal completely devastating to the very things I enjoy about Baton Rouge. I’m all for great infrastructure- I recently drove cross country and marveled at the smooth roads and wide interstates along the way, and laughed to myself about how far behind Louisiana lags. BUT driving through places like Dallas, for […]
