WALKER - Governor Bobby Jindal announced the opening of six lanes of traffic on I-12 between Juban Road and Walker in Livingston Parish.

The announcement was made this morning at a special ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The project widened this section of I-12 from four lanes to six.

This is the third project to widen I-12 in the Baton Rouge area under the Geaux Wider Program. The first project widened I-12 from four to six lanes between O'Neal Lane in Baton Rouge to Pete's Highway in Denham Springs.

The second project, also in Denham Springs, widened I-12 from four to six lanes between Pete's Highway and Juban Road.

Plans for I-12 continue as DOTD has accepted bids on a $26.5 million project to widen I-12 from four to six lanes from Walker to a half mile west of Satsuma.

Construction on this segment will begin in February and will take a year to complete.
