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 rains, we will only have access to the 1-10 via College which cannot handle more traffic. What is being done to enhance the current pumping station for this area? Was a study done and if so is it available for public review? Have they looked at adding additional lanes to help alleviate traffic?


Thank you for your comment. Proper drainage design for this area will be an important component of the Stage 3 Final Design Process. Additional lanes on Acadian are in the proposed alternative.
