The Regional Planning Commission has begun a land use and transportation study for the area along the LA 1077 corridor in the Goodbee and west St. Tammany Parish areas. The portion of the corridor to be reviewed is approximately 3.1 miles between US 190 and I-12. The purpose of the planning study is to determine the high-level costs, feasibility, and potential environmental concerns of a roadway capacity project for the portion of the LA 1077 corridor mentioned previously. The study was needed due to increased traffic as a result of population growth and development in this area of St. Tammany. It is believed by the Parish and RPC that growth in the corridor is outpacing localized improvement efforts, and a that a high level, longer term analysis for a capacity project is warranted.
Prior to moving into the conceptual design phase, St. Tammany Parish requested to have 2 general public meetings, as well as 2 local stakeholders meetings throughout the duration of this project. The meetings will allow for local input on corridor as it exists and also for its future considerations.
Meetings will be held in a hybrid format with the option to attend in-person or virtually, via Zoom.
An outline of the project scope is available on the RPC website: https://www.norpc.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Scope-MC-1.21-LA-1077-Corridor-Study.pdf
