Comment: I hope something can be done to mitigate flooding problems that we experience on Acadian! Response: Any potential drainage issues in this area and proper drainage design for the whole project area will be an important component of the Stage 3 Final Design Process. Drainage concerns pecific to Acadian Thruway separate from the I-10 […]

Comment: Will pedestrian access be preserved for those needing to cross under the interstate at Terrace, Louise and Washington streets? We’re pleased to see a multi-use path on the west side of Acadian, even though it’s merely conceptual at this point, but what about those needing to walk along the east side of Acadian between […]

Comment: We need 2 lanes on WB entrance ramp at Acadian, because of increase in traffic from the Garden District, Hundred Oaks and other areas that now use the WB entrance at Perkins. Response: Two lanes are provided on the westbound entrance ramp from Acadian Thruway to I-10 for a length of approximately 600 feet […]

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: I saw an exhibit that showed a multi-use path looping out and back on the west of Acadian Thruway, connecting the Thruway north of I-10 to south of I-10, and spanning Dawson Creek. There is also another exhibit showing good pedestrian and bicycle paths on the Nairn bridge. I appreciate the provision of sidewalks […]

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: Infrastructure design should work with human psychology to anticipate human behavior and provide safe facilities. It is great that the I-10 Widening Project includes multi-use paths and walkways for cyclists and pedestrians along Acadian Thruway, connecting TJ Ribs to the Saltgrass by crossing Dawson Creek, and along Nairn Bridge. Thank you for considering bicyclists […]

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: At the Acadian overpass location, will sidewalks be connected? This intersection can get pretty treacherous for pedestrians, especially where the sidewalks end. They are not shown on the roll maps, but I assume these are just for demonstration. There might be an opportunity to add an alternate path for bikes and pedestrians. With the […]
