This Public Hearing will be held in accordance with Act 334 of the 1974 regular session of the Louisiana Legislature and conducted by the Joint Legislative Committee on Transportation, Highways, and Public Works.


The purpose of this Public Hearing is to review highway construction priorities for the fiscal year 2005-2006 for the parishes of Allen, Beauregard, Calcasieu, Cameron, and Jefferson Davis, which comprise Highway District 07.  This review is based upon the project priorities established by the highway needs analysis.  The Highway Needs and Priority Study was done in order to determine the estimated cost of improving state maintained roads in Louisiana which do not met a specified minimum tolerable condition for a particular functional class.  Act 334 provides for a firm priority listing of the first ensuing year and tentative priorities for each of the next five subsequent years.  This provides advice on the status of highway projects contemplated or under preparation.


A copy of the Preliminary Program for Fiscal Year 2005-06 is available for review by interested persons at the Department of Transportation and Development District 07 Administrator’s office, 5827 Highway 90 East, Lake Charles, LA, 70601, and also at the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development Headquarters Building, 1202 Capitol Access Road, Room 236, Baton Rouge, LA, 70802.


All interested persons are invited to be present at the above time and place for the purpose of becoming fully acquainted with the proposed program and will be afforded an opportunity to express their views.


Oral testimony will be received.  However, in order that all persons desiring to make a statement have an equal opportunity to do so, it is requested that every effort be made to complete individual testimony in as short a period of time as possible.  Oral testimony may be supplemented by presenting important facts and documentation in writing.  Your cooperation and assistance will be appreciated.
