Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Mayor Sharon Weston Broome and community stakeholders broke ground on the Mall Of Louisiana Boulevard Project.

The ceremony included Mayor-President Sharon, Weston Broome, Councilwoman Laurie Adams, MOVEBR Program Management Team, and individuals from the Mall of Louisiana, Perkins Rowe, Dunham High School, and the Wimbledon Civic Association.

This new road is a part of the MOVEBR initiative which hopes to deliver less congestion, safer streets, and a better quality of life for residents.

Mayor Sharon Weston Broome said, “During my first term, I pledged to get EBR moving, and that pledge continues to be fulfilled today, through the MOVEBR program. This is our second groundbreaking for MOVEBR.”

This project is a new four lane roadway that will stretch from Perkins Road to the Mall of Louisiana Ring Road. It will include two new bridges over Dawson Creek, a 10-foot shared path for walking and cycling, and an underpass at the railroad track where a new drainage pump will be placed. It will also consist of a privacy wall, which will be installed along the roadway adjacent to the Wimbledon Subdivision.

They are hoping to complete this project in 2023.
