The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development proposes to make improvements to Juban Road (LA 1026) from I-12 to US 190 (Florida Blvd) in Livingston Parish. Juban Road would be widened to four 12-foot wide travel lanes with a 5-foot wide raised median. Ten-foot bicycle/pedestrian shared-use paths are included on both sides of roadway. Three roundabouts would be constructed: one located just north of I-12; one located mid-way along the project corridor approximately 1,600 feet south of the intersection of US 190, and one located at the intersection of Juban Road and US 190. In addition, new frontage roads would be constructed parallel to Juban Road east and west of the second roundabout. The new frontage roads would be constructed by LDOTD as part of the Juban Road Widening Project and would then be turned over to Livingston Parish for operation and maintenance. Curb and gutter with subsurface drainage would be installed along Juban Road and US 190.
The proposed project would be constructed in two phases. Phase I of the proposed project H.000464 consists of the construction of the roundabout at the intersection of US 190 and Juban Road; US 190 would be widened from two lanes to four lanes as it approaches the new roundabout. Phase II of the proposed project H.004634 consists of the widening of Juban Road from I-12 to US 190, the construction of two roundabouts, and the construction of new frontage roads.
