U.S. 90 overpass at La. 318 proposals
Citizens were given the opportunity to review plans and file comments on the proposed interchange on U.S. 90 at La. 318 Thursday at an open house held by the state Department of Transportation and Development and the Federal Highway Administration at West St. Mary Civic Center. Under consideration are two plans that would include either two bridges over La. 318 (Build Alternative B) or a single bridge over U.S. 90 (Build Alternative D). Costs estimates are $42 million on the former and $32 million on the latter. Residential structures that would be impacted by the project number 29 on Alternative B and 17 on Alternative D, as well as seven mobile homes on both plans. Comments on the plans will be accepted through Aug. 1, and may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or by mail to: URS Corporation, 3500 North Causeway Boulevard, Suite 900, Metairie, LA. 70002-3527, Attention: Christi Wilson.
