(Freq) 1U Roadside Memorials (09)
What is Louisiana's policy on roadside memorials? Roadside memorials are encroachments on DOTD right of way and are illegal. However, DOTD does not regularly remove such memorials unless complaints are received, an unreasonable safety hazard is created, and/or they interfere with routine roadside maintenance functions.

In regards to naming a bridge or roadway in memory of someone - this must be accomplished through an act of the state legislature. People should contact their elected official.
