Comment: To whom it may concern. First of all we should be building a loop instead of widening I-10 but seems like the decision has been made, so please please PLEASE can we try to spare as many mature trees as possible? Our gorgeous trees add to our city’s overall appeal and clean our air […]

Comment: No painting on sculptures on I-10 pylons. Response: Thank you for your comment.

Comment: I support the Expressway Park to Dalrymple initiative. I also strongly support the ‘softening’ of the I‐10 bridge as it crosses over the City Park Lake. While this project (State Project No. H.004100.2) may be needed, Baton Rouge also needs BOTH a North and South loop around Baton Rouge. Had we built true bypasses […]

Comment: 8. Bridges that cross the lakes. These new spans should be aesthetically pleasing and should have lighting and landscaping underneath. Same reasons as above with business district. 9. Can the bridges over the LSU Lakes be designed to minimize the effect of water/trash runoff? Response: 8- Potential designs for the City Park Lake bridge […]

Lucas J. Denson

Comment: The proposed designs for the city lake bridge and proposed walking trail connections looked very enjoyable. Response: Thank you for your comment.

Comment: City Park Lakes Bridge: Spandrel Arch option will be covered with bird excrement, and appears to require more columns in the Lakes. Haunched Box appears to be sleeker, to have fewer columns in the Lakes, and would have fewer bird roosting issues. Sound barriers are proposed for the bridge. I would prefer that there3 […]

Thomas Bryan

Comment: I hope that any sound barrier on the LSU Lake bridge will be clear because messing up one of the prettiest views in Baton Rouge would be a huge mistake aesthetically. What are the plans? Thank you! Response: DOTD is in the process of gathering public input relative to noise barriers on the City […]

Comment: Two. As I understand it, the bridges across City Park Lake are to be reworked. Part of that rework will be the addition of Sound Walls on the Bridges. Of the many miles of Interstate that pass through Baton Rouge, the “lakes” (City Park/LSU area) are the only places really worth looking at. It […]

Comment: I 0. Is an environmental study being done regarding the Lakes Project? If so are the results available to the public? Response: The proposed project does not include any study of the lakes; however, the project is being designed with consideration to the Lakes Master Plan.

Comment: How about we consider the ramps at college? Response: Thank you for your comment. We are considering modification of the westbound exit lanes.

Devin Lance Graham

Comment: Use the frontage road as the access ramp and reduce the amount of traffic lights on College. The two back to back lights can be replaced by a large traffic circle. At the end of the Frontage Road, access the Interstate. Use the funds saved on materials on Interstate at ramp to improve Frontage […]

Cody Matherne

Comment: Over the years of living and driving around Baton Rouge, what I have come to notice is where the traffic usually begins is at on ramps. This seems to be because people typically have a fear of or have never learned to merge into lanes of traffic. This is especially the issue at the […]

Ronald Ray

Comment: Now, there’s one other thing. I’m not through yet, but let me think a minute. Okay. This is my issue Number 2: Is there any way possible to, please, get a right-hand entrance ramp off College Drive westbound instead of having to turn left on the loop-de-loop? I still want to leave that entrance […]
