LA 30: SOUTH BLVD – W. CHIMES ST

LADOTD is proposing improvements to LA 30 (Nicholson Drive) in East Baton Rouge from South Boulevard to W. Chimes Street and the relocation of an I-10 exit ramp terminal. Construction would include the institution of access management systems along the LA 30 corridor, the addition of subsurface drainage, roadway resurfacing and pavement rehabilitation, and the addition of connective sidewalks along the entirety of the corridor. The I-10 Highland/Nicholson exit ramp terminal would be relocated from its current location at Terrace Street to a new point tying into Oklahoma Street with turn lane additions on Oklahoma Street and a new signalized intersection at Oklahoma/Nicholson.

The access management techniques proposed will include the closing of some existing median openings, the addition of new turn lanes and directional median openings, the relocation of specific signals, and right in/ right out turnouts for many of the access points along the corridor. The corridor will remain a 4 lane road with a divided median.  Additional right-of-way (ROW) is required for the ramp location only. Relocations are not anticipated. The project is approximately 1.5 miles in length.
