Road work commencing on Hwy 44/Conway subdivision


Staging area at front of Conway subdivision

Work has begun along Hwy 44, south of Gonzales, with crews staging pipe intended to move storm water in/around Conway subdivision to its natural outflow, Bayou Conway.  That is according to Louisiana DOTD.

Looking south along Hwy 44

The project was noticed by DOTD four months ago:

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LA DOTD) proposes improvements to the LA 44 corridor from I-10 to LA 22 in Gonzales.  Phase 1 proposes a multilane roundabout south of LA 941 (Loosemore Road) and completion of the four-lane section from I-10 to the Conway Plantation roundabout. The project proposes to widen LA 44 to four lanes from approximately I-10 to LA 941 (Loosemore Road) and add a multilane roundabout on LA 44 south of LA 941 (Loosemore Road). The location of the proposed roundabout south of LA 941 (Loosemore Road) has been revised since the previous public meeting held on August 7, 2017, for this project.

An open house public meeting was held on September 25, 2018, and August 7, 2017, at the Ascension Parish Governmental Complex.  The purpose of this meeting was to provide information about the project and to obtain input from interested parties.  The proposed conceptual layout of the entire corridor and Phase 1 was on display.  Oral and written comments on the project were collected during the meeting. Comments can be mailed to the LA DOTD address shown below, postmarked by October 26, 2018.
