DOTD announces priority roadways in Baton Rouge
With Hurricane Isaac expected to cause some state road and bridge closures throughout south Louisiana, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development this morning released a list of priority routes that it will strive to maintain throughout the storm. In the Baton Rouge area, the priority routes are Interstates 10, 12 and 110, as well as U.S. highways 190 and 61 and state highways 1, 19, 67, 2127 and 70. "DOTD will do everything possible to keep Louisiana's highways and interstate system open in the event of inclement weather, but we must prioritize maintaining and re-opening roadways based on traffic volumes," reads a statement from DOTD. "The priority routes will be the first to be maintained and kept open where possible as a result of the predicted weather." You can check out the priority routes for all areas of the state here.
