One of the first things large companies wanting to relocate look at is curb appeal of the community. People want to move to places that look nice. The cost/return ratio of simply planting trees is enormous. Please consider the green infrastructure when planning this widening. We have enough stacked against us to pass on a low-cost, high reward beautification project.
DOTD will be replacing trees in accordance with their Significant Tree policy and will replant where, possible in coordination with Baton Rouge Green.
