Baton Rouge — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announces the launch of an online poll for identifying and prioritizing recreational amenities along a nearly 1-mile long greenway beneath and alongside I-10 through Baton Rouge, extending from Myrtle Street at Expressway Park southeast to E. Polk Street Park. DOTD is partnering with BREC to ensure the greenway’s multi-use path continues through these parks and links the existing Downtown Greenway to Dalrymple Drive and trails around City Park and University Lakes.

The poll is map-based, allowing participants to select from a list of proposed amenity types and place them on a map of the greenway corridor where desired. The poll replicates a public engagement exercise offered in-person at a community open house event held August 19, 2021 at the Dr. Leo S. Butler Community Center. Results of the poll will be used by designers to draft plans for the greenway corridor which will then be presented to the public at an open house event later this year.

The poll can be reached via the project website via a button on the homepage, or directly at It is now live through the month of October, 2021.

This greenway amenities poll is the second of several online public input opportunities for aspects of the I-10 project. The first poll, concluded in August, allowed design selection for the I-10 bridge spanning City Park Lake. As the project progresses, future polls are expected to gain feedback from the public on other amenities and enhancement features for consideration within the corridor.
