To whom it may concern. I am in support of the overall project and realize that some times you must give to get and there will be impacted areas of the road work. I do ask that DOTD take in consideration of the existing trees and overall esthetics of the road project. The trees are a great asset to DOTD and the commuters of the road. The cost to plant a new tree is nothing when looked at the true dollars they can save in the long run. DOTD could even turn this in to a revenue center with producing air quality tax credits and selling them.
DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
