Construction (finally) begins on Government Street “road diet”

The long awaited and much delayed Government St. construction is officially underway.

This $11.7 million construction is going to turn the 4 lane road into 2 lanes with a middle turning lane and biking/walking lanes on either side. According to the Business Report, there are also plans to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Lobdell and Government St.

The groundbreaking began near Evergreen Street, not far from Baton Rouge Magnet and is expecting 2 years to complete (snow days not included).
