BATON ROUGE - State transportation officials asked people today to help them improve traffic on the La. 1 corridor.
The Department of Transportation and Development posted a survey for people to answer if they drive along La. 1. DOTD hopes it will help them improve traffic and safety along the route from the Intracoastal Waterway to Bayou Plaquemine.
There are no definite plans as of yet, but those living in Addis near Sugar Plantation Parkway hope those plans keep a traffic signal at a deadly intersection. DOTD installed a temporary light last year at the intersection of Sugar Plantation and La. 1 after multiple fatal crashes.

Sylvia Weatherspoon featured how Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge recently helped make one woman's dream of having her own home come true as part of her 2 Make A Difference series.
It took about four months, dozens of volunteers from Exxon Mobile and 2,200 volunteer hours to build the home. It's number 292 for the organization, which started building homes in the capital city in 1989.
If you're interested in volunteering, Habitat will help train you to build their homes. For more information, visit their website.
