BR drivers encouraged to give opinions on I-10 problems, solutions

Baton Rouge area drivers should take advantage of an opportunity to give their opinions and offer solutions to the traffic congestion on the Interstate 10 corridor, according to the state's top transportation advocacy group.


The Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development is conducting an online survey as part of an improvement study to address traffic issues along I-10 in Baton Rouge. The survey, which takes less than five minutes to complete, is available at through the end of May.


"This is a good opportunity to give DOTD feedback on how I-10 congestion is impacting citizens' travel problems, including economic impacts," said Kenneth Perret, president of the Louisiana Good Roads and Transportation Association. "The results of this survey will help DOTD determine which improvements are feasible and have broad based support from citizens and elected officials. Past improvement plans have been derailed by special interest groups and political opportunists."


The improvement study is looking at traffic along the I-10 corridor between La. 415 in West Baton Rouge Parish to the Essen Lane interchanges on I-10 and I-12. According to a DOTD news release, the department will work with "residents, businesses, commuters, industries and legislators to gather ideas for improving the corridor through an open dialogue for community input."


Along with the online survey, DOTD will be conducting random telephone and mail surveys to gather input. After the surveys are completed, DOTD plans to hold public meetings on I-10 improvements.

Louisiana Good Roads and Transportation Association is a statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to fostering and promoting a program of planning, design, construction and maintenance of an adequate transportation system, sufficiently financed, which will conveniently and safely serve the transportation needs of the people of Louisiana.
