The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is conducting an open house public meeting for the proposed Government Street project from East Boulevard to Lobdell Avenue in Baton Rouge. The proposed project consists of rehabilitating the existing pavement, implementing a “road diet,” incorporating bicycle and pedestrian elements, and constructing a round about at the intersection of Government Street and Lobdell Avenue.
The road diet would reduce the number of travel lanes on Government Street from four lanes (two lanes in each
direction) to three lanes (one travel lane in each direction with a center two-way-left-turn-lane). The purpose of the meeting is to provide information about the project and to obtain input from
interested parties. There will be a continuous multi-media presentation about the project. Additional project information will be available. Representatives from DOTD will be available at the open house to answer questions and discuss issues related to the project. Oral and written comments on the project can be submitted at the meeting. Comments can also be mailed to the DOTD address shown below, postmarked by December 30, 2015.
The public meeting has been scheduled as follows:
Thursday, December 17, 2015 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church Parish Activity Center
440 Marquette Avenue Baton Rouge, LA 70806
