Acadian or College Dr. Response: An eastbound entrance ramp to I-10 from Dalrymple Drive is being provided by utilizing the westbound entrance ramp and collector road to the dedicated U-Turn under I-10 just […]

Comment: If we can’t build a new bridge or do a loop how about looking into widening Airline Highway and directing traffic towards the old bridge? Thanks for allowing me to express my opinion. Response: During the Stage 0 Feasibility Study for this project, alternative regional transportation improvements were considered including a new southern Mississippi […]

Comment: I think the biggest problem we actually have that everyone knows is getting over the bridge. Even if you bring all these people, add a lane, you’re still going to have more people crowded up trying to get across the bridge. If you could find a way to get the people, the big trucks, […]

Comment: And what I couldn’t even think about and I kept waiting and kept waiting and they never talked about, the bridge that was existing that they built from nowhere to nowhere again, New Roads to St. Francisville, on another road coming straight from Alexandria. If you draw a line, as the crow flies, it’s […]

Comment: I have listened to your video….if you would like for people who live & work here in Baton Rouge to be able to get to work & around the city then you need to have alternative routes not just ONE route that was a poor poor design to begin with…..if you keep funneling traffic […]

Comment: First comment, I think that doing this project with the widening costing $360,000,000 is a waste of money and a waste of time. First reason, in about two or three years after completion, it will be just as congested. It’ll be just as bad as it is now, different way, different manner, but the […]

Comment: As an architect who has studied urban design, I do not understand why the proponents of this plan think that funneling 4 lanes of traffic into 2 lanes of traffic is better than funneling 3 lanes of traffic into 2 lanes of traffic across the bridge. The bridge is the problem here and until […]

Comment: 2) LSU Access & Signage Due to the limitations of traveling through the LSU campus via vehicle, access to the east side of LSU and the surrounding urbanized area is critical to the success of this project. Southbound travelers from I-110 would be limited to two options to access the LSU east campus at […]

Comment: Why does DOTD not support a toll loop ? Exit I10 East of Grosse Tete go south until turning east to tie into hwy1 between Addis and Dow . Cross Mississippi River turning slight southeast to tie intoI10 west of Hwy 73 ? Allow oil companies to build service stations in middle of loop […]

Comment: Ten years from now, will it help Baton Rouge to have this somewhat wider section of I-10? Will we look back in 2028 and say that we were so glad that all the money and disruption was worth it to solve the problem? I think everyone is frustrated and everyone wants to do something. […]

Comment: Only take the land that is needed, replace what was taken X2. If this is done we thrive, if it isn’t we only survive for 1 generation. Response: Brochures from DOTD’s Real Estate section with more details on the acquisition process can be downloaded here: http://wwwsp.dotd.la.gov/Inside_LaDOTD/Divisions/Engineering/Real_Estate/Manuals/2016%20Acquistion%20Brochure%20revised%208.31.16.pdf

Comment: Great concern for our property use and value due to this project. Response: Thank you for your comment.

Comment: 3. What reflection will this project have on our property value? I am concerned that my tenants might want to move out now that there is supposedly going to be massive construction, which of course you know will not likely be completed on time (based on the rest of the construction/destruction around Baton Rouge.
