Comment: Please reconsider the overdevelopment that is occurring in BR. I live in Southeast BR where profound flooding took place. Removing land and substituting concrete minimizes water flow. Response: Thank you for your comments. A large amount of the project will occur on elevated interstate/bridge sections, minimizing additional pavement on the ground.

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 […]
