The Regional Planning Commission, in collaboration with St. Tammany Parish, is conducting a land use and transportation study for the area along the LA 1077 corridor in western St. Tammany Parish. 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 LA 1077 corridor. 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.

At this open house meeting, the project team for the study will present and take feedback from the public on two potential alternatives for capacity enhancements to LA 1077. This event will be held in an “open house” format consisting of several individual stations with conceptual plans and feedback exercises. Members of the public may attend and participate in this event at any time from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM.

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
