The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) proposes to expand a portion of LA 28 East starting from its western intersection with LA 3128 (Libuse) to its eastern intersection with LA 1207 (Holloway) in Rapides Parish. The proposed project construction study area is 7.25 miles in length and is classified as a rural principal arterial with four (4) lanes and a central two-way left turn lane until it tapers to a non-divided, two-lane section without turn lanes at LA 1205. The lanes are 12-feet wide with 8-foot shoulders along the 4-lane section and 10-foot shoulders along the 2-lane section.
Three design alternatives were studied for this proposed project, as well as a No-Build Alternative. An environmental and engineering constraints review of the remaining project area from LA 1207 to US 84 in Catahoula Parish was also studied.
