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.

Now we find out that "immediately" means 2-3 years. That's pathetic. 

This doesn't make sense. 

They are issuing bonds to borrow against future earnings to pay for this "right now".    It's essentially 30 years worth of infrastructure projects that should happen within 10 years.     The article states "depending on availability of funding" - the whole point of the vote was to alleviate that concern and pull this forward.   

Some of these projects are basically just adding sidewalks and landscaping.   How does that take 36 months to start?   Even the atrocious delay to adding sidewalks to Gardere was only 18 months or so.

Tired of hitting red lights? Baton Rouge traffic signal upgrades could shorten drive times

https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/article_14a2d1c6-3fbb-11eb-a378-533af21c819e.html

Didn't they do this already a few years back?

Wish something would shorten these development timelines.  Tired of hitting red lights of our state and local  government's ineptitude when it comes to infrastructure.  :(

Yeah the light synchronization is straight up clown world!  Think they finally got it semi-right in downtown area of BR; but the rest of the city?? But they like to talk a lot before something actually gets done!

But seems no matter where i go ....The Woodlands TX ; Gulf Shores AL or Orlando FL....The the traffic light set up sucks!

LOL GOOD STUFFF Cajun!!!!

Wondered it this new roadway would ever get built?  The new Children's Hosp Boulevard would expend from Essen Lane to Bluebonnet Blvd

Fate of Ralph & Kacoo’s property in flux amid MovEBR project

After closing nearly two years ago for an “extensive remodel,” Ralph & Kacoo’s is facing increased pressure to abandon its longtime Baton Rouge location and potentially sell it to the city, which is considering demolishing the building to make room for a new roadway.

A MovEBR project will create a new four-lane roadway from the end of the existing Constantin Drive, near Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, that will intersect Bluebonnet Boulevard between the Hyatt Hotel and Ralph & Kacoo’s. 

However, a revised Environmental Assessment reflecting an alignment shifted more onto the restaurant’s property is currently pending approval from the Federal Highway Administration. It’s not immediately known when the FHWA will respond to the request.

Is it going to be 2 lanes? Thought 4 lanes and sidewalks were supposed to be apart of it?

I would settle for them doing something.....anything related to the list that voters approved.

Driving down Old Hammond Hwy East has a different look now from Millerville Road to O'Neal Lane....Trees have been cleared away from the power lines of the Two-lane roadway.  This stretch of road needs widening paralleling between  I-12 and Florida Blvd(190)

Baton Rouge gears up to link Jones Creek and Jefferson; Work ahead in Central, Southdowns

Lee Drive finally widened?  Residents yards will get cut in 1/2

Jones Creek Rd extension will eventually  go all the way to Airline Hwy

Widening of Bluebonnet is a must ; the Perkins / Picardy connector will help when finally completed

Interested seeing how this new R.R Underpass works at One Perkins Place in the Medical Corridor
