Topic: MULTIPURPOSE PATH

Cullen Boudreaux

Comment: The recommended bicycle connection between Mid-City’s designated bike lanes and the pedestrian-friendly Historic Overpass Area is currently an orange rated route that takes cyclists under the Perkins Road Overpass into a muddy, unlit gulch. The widening of I-10 is our community’s opportunity to create a designated crossing wide enough for bicycles and double-wide strollers. […]

Comment: A way to walk or bike for the homeowners in the Hundred Oaks area to the historic shopping area on the other side of 1-10 would be a great SAFE way for them to get there. Presently, there is no safe way for bikers or strollers. And, personally, that bridge over the train has […]

Comment: The current recommended bike connection between Mid-City and the overpass area takes cyclists under the overpass and is muddy and not well lit. We need a designated crossing wide enough for bicyclists or strollers. A pedestrian bridge could be built from the Rhododendron Avenue intersection over the train tracks and under the interstate. The […]

Comment: 3. Ensuring the area under the new bridge would have connectivity with the businesses in the form of walking/bike paths. Response: The project team is actively working on enhancements for the Perkins Road area and will consider the recommendations provided.

Comment: I am a Garden District resident, and I think the proposal for a bike path that makes it easier to get from our neighborhood to the part of town including Trader Joe’s, Magpie and Zippys would be a great improvement to our community! This promotes health and will lead to less fuel emission for […]

Comment: Use elevated Interstate to create row for bikes and pedestrians to cool parks. Response: We presume that the comment suggests uses for the areas under the interstate, particularly in the Perkins Road area. Thank you for your comments.

Comment: I am writing regarding the I-10 widening project. I care about pedestrian and bike safety, and think Baton Rouge has a long way to go on this issue. Will the I-10 project include protected bike and pedestrian improvements to protect pedestrians and bikers from increased traffic volume and speeds that we can expect from […]

Comment: Please consider other modes of transportation (biking, walking etc.) when planning this project. Response: Thank you for your comment. Concepts to incorporate pedestrian/bike access are under consideration in various locations.

Comment: Please keep bike lanes on Dalrymple on lake side rather than crossing streets. Response: Thank you for your comment, we will take them under advisement while working through potential mitigation and enhancements for the project.

Comment: 7. Valley Street/Nairn Dr. Bridge. This is another important thoroughfare for the neighborhood that keeps traffic off of S. Acadian and College. How is the replacement of this bridge going to be handled? The new bridge will need to have a separated pedestrian/bike pathway. Are motifs going to be added such as the Wisner […]

Doug Moore

Comment: We love the Nairn Bridge concept drawings. What is the suggested alternative route for bikes/pedestrians during the time it takes to rebuild the Nairn Bridge? Response: Thank you for your comments. Conceptual alternative routes for traffic using the Nairn Bridge will be developed, it is not know if these detours would accomodate pedestrian and […]

Comment: Hi, you all have heard from me quite a lot about this. I appreciate the great work doing public outreach and engagement that your firms have done on this project. If you could find time to answer to these questions officially, we’d appreciate it: If project costs turn out to be more than anticipated, […]

Comment: PLEASE keep the bike/pedestrian design elements included thus far. These items have a way of vanishing from the “plans” and are an essential safety feature. THANK YOU. Response: Thank you for your comments.
