Comment: I find this proposal completely devastating to the very things I enjoy about Baton Rouge. I’m all for great infrastructure- I recently drove cross country and marveled at the smooth roads and wide interstates along the way, and laughed to myself about how far behind Louisiana lags.

Comment: I am President of the Hollydale Homeowner’s Association for 36 individually owned Condominiums located at 2293 Hollydale Avenue. We will be strongly impacted by the widening of I-10.

Comment: The main detrimental effect of widening is to the Perkins Rd area. Prolonged construction can have a serious effect on businesses in close proximity. This is a thriving area that could suffer greatly with the plans at hand , and should be protected. I have seen many areas where almost all the businesses failed […]

Comment: Access to Perkins Road Overpass area businesses shall be maintained at all times. Construction traffic shall not go down residential streets south of Perkins Road unless absolutely necessary. Environmental Inventory Comments: Are City Park and LSU Lakes protected under Section 4f of Dept of Transportation Act? Many significant trees appear to be impacted, both […]
