Geaux Wider NOLA construction is complete! The $42.4 million construction initiative has widened I-10 from six to 10 lanes between Clearview Parkway and Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Jefferson Parish. Commuters are benefitting from the increased capacity, improved safety and enhanced mobility on this heavily traveled segment of I-10. The work has also improved the ability to safely and efficiently evacuate residents in the event of hurricanes or other natural/manmade disasters and enhanced Louisiana’s regional economic development opportunities.
Future construction projects include the continued widening of I-10 westward through Jefferson Parish. This work is in the planning stages and construction monies have not yet been identified by the state or federal government. DOTD will keep everyone informed when the next phase of work in the Geaux Wider NOLA program is expected to begin.
