Residents invited to public hearings to discuss I-10 widening project
BATON ROUGE - State officials with the Department of Transportation and Development are inviting residents to ask questions concerning the widening of I-10 around the Mississippi River Bridge.
Announced early last year, the proposed project will add an additional lane in each direction on I-10 from LA 415 to Essen Lane.
“I’m proud to say we are moving forward with the much-needed widening of I-10 in Baton Rouge. We’ve waited long enough and citizens across Louisiana talk about Baton Rouge’s congestion,” Gov. John Bel Edwards said in a statement Monday.
The public hearing will begin with a brief introduction from DOTD followed by an open house forum with information stations, including a Real Estate station. Representatives of the DOTD and the project team will be available to answer questions relative to this project. A prerecorded presentation of information relative to the general location, design features, impacts of the project, tentative project schedule, acquisition of right-of-way, and relocation assistance will play continuously during the open house forum.
During the final hour of the hearing, attendees will have an opportunity to make a public statement for the public record.
The meeting will be held at the following times and locations.
