Plans to expand Juban Rd. unveiled

DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) - A main artery to I-12 in Livingston Parish could get a much-needed expansion in the future.

State transportation officials unveiled the new plans for Juban Road at a meeting Tuesday afternoon at Eastside Elementary.

The plans are to make Juban four lanes between I-12 and Florida Blvd.

The proposal also includes installing three roundabouts to keep traffic flowing in both directions.

"It gives us an opportunity to bring the concept out to the general public and show them what kind of plan for the area and see what our suggestion is," said Brenden Rush with DOTD.

There will also be an additional right-of-way on both sides, along with a five-foot median in the middle of the roadway.
