MoveEBR

Recommended Posts

Looks like new tax passed for the proposed MoveEBR...an overlap to he unfinished Green Light Plan....also includes Intersection improvements & new Turn-lanes; Drainage; etc....AND "Mobility Features"? & Light Synchronization! 

  Not exactly sure what is in store for So.Flannery Road?  Seeing  "new Sidewalks" for So.Sherwood Forest Blvd.  A New Ardenwood-Lobdell connector...."new Multi-use Path?" for So.Sherwood from I-10 to Old Hammond Hwy...."New Sidewalk"? on Centurion Ave from O'Neal Ln. to Crossbow Dr.?  New Bike Path from College Dr. to Country Club Drive

Some of the More Pressing Needs.....

# Widening Old Hammond Hwy to 4 lanes all the way thru to Florida Blvd/Hwy 190.

# 6 Lanes for Airline Hwy North of Florida Blvd Hwy 190 to I-110 &  South to Acsension Parish

# 4 Lane Nicholson (Hwy 30) down to Iberville Parish border

# New 4-Lane Perkins/Picardy Connector....that was part of Green Light Plan II...we new R.R. Underpass & Bridge over Creek

#4 Lane  Pecue Lane

# Jones Creek Road 4 -lane Extension to Airline Hwy

# 6-Lanes for Bluebonnet from Mall of La. to Perkins Rowe; guess the Skywalk will be torn down?

# 4 Lane Lee Drive...REALLY??

#College Drive Enhancements

# Medical Corridor(Health District)   ....new Midway Ave &  Dijon Ave Phase II from Bluebonnet to Midway & Hennessey-Perkins Connector at Kenilworth Pkwy

This will be very impactful for the Baton Rouge area.    I only wish that EBR taxpayers weren't footing so much of the bill for what will be a regional impact.   The state should be paying for 90% of both of these projects IMO.   

 

And to clarify, Lee Drive isn't a "widening" project.   It's a "capacity enhancement" project, which likely means a center turn lane and sidewalks, which is about the maximum they could do without negatively impacting the neighborhood.   That will also be a big impact.   

If they actually were able to widen Lee Drive to 4 lanes, College Drive wouldn't be able to handle the downstream traffic flow.
