LADOTD conducting public meeting for proposed Government St. project

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - 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 and implementing a "road diet" to implement the "Complete Street" concept. 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 February 16, 2015. The public meeting has been scheduled as follows:

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
BREC Independence Recreation Center
7500 Independence Boulevard
Baton Rouge, LA 70806
