DENHAM SPRINGS- Thursday, state traffic leaders will discuss the possibility of adding a new exit and interchange to I-12.

Engineers will display drawings for changes to I-12 at Pete's Highway. Adding an exit there could help ease congestion on Range Avenue. Other routes are being discussed.

A population and business explosion is forcing the change.

"New growth has definitely contributed to traffic congestion in the area and that was taken into consideration," said DOTD spokesperson Rodney Mallet.

The plans will be on display at Southside Junior High from 5 to 7 Thursday evening. Click HERE to review the plans now.
