Interstate 10 Widening Project Complete

After four years of work, the Interstate 10 widening project between Siegen Lane and Highland Road in Baton Rouge is now complete. The $60-million dollar project adds an additional lane in each direction on the heavily traveled corridor.
 
Louisiana Department of Transportation secretary Sherri LeBas said at Tuesday's ribbon-cutting ceremony that the added lanes will help all motorists, not just the local drivers in Baton Rouge but drivers statewide.

"There's approximately 83 thousand cars that travel this corridor a day, so the way it affects the community is it provides an easier travel experience for our drivers, it reduces the travel time, it provides more safety to the traveling public," LeBas said.
 
The widening project, which is one of the projects in the Geaux Wider program, was financed with federal stimulus money. LeBas says the DOTD are planning to continue improvement of both Interstates 10 and 12 in Louisiana.
