Thanks to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, anyone can now find information about the Interstate 10 widening project from Baton Rouge to La. 73 in Ascension Parish.

DOTD introduced a new “online center for news, photos, videos, and links to social media platforms about the Interstate 10 widening project.”

According to the DOTD, “the ‘On the Greaux‘ project widens I-10 to six lanes from Highland Road in Baton Rouge to La. 73 in Ascension Parish.”

Construction along this corridor started in February of 2018 and DOTD said it will take around two years to finish. 

“Widening I-10 to six lanes between East Baton Rouge and Ascension parishes will not only mitigate traffic, but it will benefit business and industrial growth along the New Orleans-to-Baton Rouge corridor,” DOTD Secretary Dr. Shawn Wilson said. “On the Greaux captures the spirit of putting Louisiana first by moving the state forward through transportation infrastructure improvements that foster economic development and improve the quality of life of our citizens.”

According to the DOTD, along with construction updates, individuals who frequent ‘On the Greaux‘ will be able to sign up for email updates.
