Comment: Keep the elevated spans separate, to provide light and air to the crossing street. Widening the spans on the inside lanes and thereby eliminating the open space between spans gives an undesirable dark tunnel that is not inviting or welcoming. Electric lights are not the solution, they use electricity and burn out or are […]

Comment: 36. Will community enhancement be made before the project starts? Or will they never get done like most projects? Response: DOTD will make commitments for community enhancements, mitigation, and context sensitive solutions in the EA. Implementation of these items will vary depending on phasing of the project.

Comment: Also, can something PLEASE be done about I-110! This stretch of intrastate in absolutely appalling from an aesthetic standpoint. Anyone travelling south on this roadway should be able to admire the view of our auspicious governor’s mansion and our towering state capital building. Instead we see disgusting LITTER filled roadways and WEEDS! Response: DOTD […]

Comment: Will pedestrian access be preserved for those needing to cross under the interstate at Terrace, Louise and Washington streets? We’re pleased to see a multi-use path on the west side of Acadian, even though it’s merely conceptual at this point, but what about those needing to walk along the east side of Acadian between […]

Comment: 5) Neighborhood and Street Impact Any closures or separation of neighborhood streets proposed in this project should be studied and minimized. The closure and/or separation of neighborhood streets has historically divided neighborhoods and spurred disinvestment and safety issues amongst the nearby properties. Streets in the downtown area that were closed when interstates I-10 and […]

Comment: Support local businesses and prevent construction from putting them out of business. Educate about real impacts during and after construction. Activate the area with signs above the interstate to drive business below. Pop-up events to help fundraise for local businesses. Response: Thank you for your comments.

Comment: 2. What are the impacts on our community? Response: The Environmental Assessment will consider impacts associated with the construction and operation of the project.

Comment: 22. When will I know if my business will be affected? Response: The existing apparent proposed right-of-way shows businesses that will be directly affected by the widening. Other business impacts, such as access during construction, will be worked out during the design stage.

Comment: 7. DOTD needs to give us assurances that heavy equipment will not be traveled down the residential nearby areas of Perkins Rd. What are the plans for the movement of heavy equipment and man power through this historic area populated with two lane roads? Response: During the final design and construction administration, DOTD will […]

Comment: Okay. I was reading over the GPS system, computer help over there, and it appears that our location at 1358 is out of the way of construction. But the major concern is the traffic pattern. There is a straight direct drive in the middle of the traffic zone, or the construction zone, that may […]

Comment: Please consider an alternative route for freight during construction, like Hwy 190 Response: Alternative routes during construction will be developed in a Draft Transportation/Traffic Management Plan (TMP), which will be complete in mid-2019.

Comment: Construction questions: 1. When do you anticipate expansion to begin on the interstate alongside of Estates Road? 2. What is the projected duration of construction for this phase, which includes I-10 expansion alongside Estates Road? 3. Will construction take place all day and all night alongside Estates Road? I am self-employed and work from […]
