The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) and the City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge Government (City/Parish) propose the Louisiana State Highway (LA) 73 (Government Street) project which consists of rehabilitating the existing pavement and implementing a “road diet” to incorporate bicycle and pedestrian friendly concepts. The road diet would reduce the number of travel lanes on Government Street from four lanes (two lanes in each direction) to three lanes (one travel lane in each direction with a center two-way-left-turn-lane). Approximately 4.2 miles of the Government Street corridor from East Boulevard (30.443714, -91.18071) in Downtown Baton Rouge continuing eastward to the Lobdell Avenue intersection (30.445397, -91.111033) near Independence Park is included in this project. A roundabout would replace the signalized intersection at Government Street, Lobdell Avenue, and Independence Park Boulevard. The turning geometry at the Government Street and Jefferson Highway intersection would also be improved.
