Comment: 18. Why wouldn’t it be better idea to widen Airline Highway and make it six lanes first from Plank Road to Prairieville before work of any kind much less this radical widening is even contemplated on the interstate Response: DOTD investigated this in the Baton Rouge Urban Mobility Plan (BUMP) study.  Model runs showed […]

Comment: 19. Will the traffic lights on Airline Highway be removed during construction to facilitate an alternate route? Response: A full Transportation Management plan will be performed prior to construction of the project to help facilitate traffic and determine any mitigating projects that need to be completed.

Comment: Don’t take off the ramps. Response: The Perkins Road ramps need to be removed to modify the Acadian ramps. They cannot remain in place with the additional travel lanes.

Comment: 5. The S. Acadian/l-10 Interchange needs to be modified to handle the additional traffic this project will generate. This would include both Northbound Stanford/S. Acadian and Southbound Stanford/S. Acadian from Perkins Rd to the interstate. The idea is three through lanes crossing Perkins with two of these dedicated to turning onto the 1- l […]

Comment: If the Acadian WB Off Ramp could somehow be incorporated into the new College Off Ramp that is separate from the main flow, that would potentially help the thru traffic also. Looks to me like there are almost as many getting off at Acadian, as College, when LSU/schools are in session. Response: Thank you […]

Comment: 5. The S. Acadian/1-10 Interchange needs to be modified to handle the additional traffic this project will generate. This would include both Northbound Stanford/S. Acadian and Southbound Stanford/S. Acadian from Perkins Rd to the interstate. The idea is three lanes crossing Perkins with one dedicated to turning onto the 1-10, a middle lane where […]

Comment: Acadian Interchange: Why is a double diamond proposal not included? This could eliminate some light cycles? Can oak trees be maintained? Request landscaping, sidewalks, and nice lighting from interchange to Perkins Road and Bawell. Not just brick pavers in the medians. Provide protection for pedestrians to separate them from traffic. Acadian Thruway is a […]

Comment: PLEASE add some form of sidewalk along Acadian Thruway ( there are multiple schools in the area .) Response: Thank you for your comments. Existing sidewalks will be replaced. New sidewalks are being evaluated, but any new sidewalks proposed will require maintenance agreement with City before implementation.

Comment: I am also concerned that the project has omitted a sidewalk on the east side of S. Acadian. In an urban environment, near schools, parks and Universities sidewalks are a must. Transportation engineers must remember that their designs have a direct affect on pedestrians and cyclists. Engineers must take responsibility for multimodal safety. 40,200 […]

Comment: 6. Improvements to the Perkins Rd-S. Acadian Intersection and underpass. If the Perkins Rd entrance and exits ramps are removed, that will increase the use of S. Acadian entrance and exit ramps. In order to access the ramps, you have to go under the train tracks and this passage always floods. Every time it […]

Comment: To reduce the likelihood of purchasing houses on Eugene St. Response: Thank you for your comment. In order to provide improvements to the Acadian interchange, two residences on Eugene are in or immediately adjacent to proposed right-of-way and would require acquisition. Others on Eugene may be offered opportunity to sale due to access issues […]

Comment: I’m facing elevation of my home due to flood issues and now this. How much of fair market value could I get for a buyout of my property? Response: During the acquisition process, appraisals are done to determine value.
