Finish 3132 Website Updates - 3132 News - Finish 3132 - Transportation - Safety - Shreveport - Bossier City - Louisiana > Feasibility Report Due End of June, 27 May 2014 [cached]
Kent Rogers, executive director of the Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments, said today that he received an update from Buchart Horn, Inc. on Thursday, June 14, and that the Baton Rouge engineering firm expects to have its Stage 0 report completed by the end of the June. The report was given at the MPO Transportation Planning Committee of NLCOG today at Council Chambers at Government Plaza in Shreveport. Attending were Cedric Glover, Chairman, Mayor of Shreveport; Darrell Goza, Louisiana DOTD, District IV; Charles Kirkland, Metropolitan Planning Commission; Eric England, Port of Caddo-Bossier; Lorenz Walker, Mayor of Bossier City; Woodrow Wilson, Caddo Parish Commission, and Kent Rogers, NLCOG Executive Director.
Rogers said the week of July 23 is the tentative timetable for the first public meeting. Rogers suggested a third meeting for the MPO to formally accept the Stage 0 report. Some of the suggested locations for the meetings are LSU Shreveport, Port of Caddo-Bossier or an area church.
Regarding the Stage 1 environmental assessment, Rogers has asked Burk-Kleinpeter, Inc., another Baton Rouge engineering firm working on the project, for a generalized task and timeline on having an August 1 “go date� with early January 2014 for the final report. Rogers said, “I’m anticipating getting a FONSI (finding of no significant impact) return.� Mayor Walker asked if the (3132) Coalition has been provided a copy of the report on Stage 1.
Rogers said he just received it on Friday but he will supply a report to the public “posting on website and making copies available.�
Mayor Glover asked Rogers about public education on I-69 progress, mentioning that there is a tie-in to the discussion about the extension of Louisiana Highway 3132.

Kent Rogers, NLCOG executive director, indicated that NLCOG will hold at least three meetings where public comments will be heard.
The mayor commended Rogers for requiring vendors that met the “fair share� program and indicated that although all of the presenters had good presentations and were competent, Burk-Kleinpeter had the highest rating.
The entire process of vetting highways is complex but Rogers said it was necessary in order to assure the project was eligible for state and federal funding.

Kent Rogers, executive director of Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments (NLCOG), said everyone knows where I-49 currently ends at I-20.
"And we know the I-49 interchange at I-220 will be located roughly halfway between Hilry Huckaby and Louisiana 1," Rogers said.
To determine the best way to connect those two dots, a feasibility study contract was recently awarded to Providence Engineering and Environmental in Baton Rouge. They have 18 months to find the path of least resistance. Rogers said Providence was chosen through a selection process by NLCOG, an intergovernmental association of local governments established to assist in planning for projects such as this.
"That process requires us to advertise," he said.
"Additional monies were put into that account last year, and the year before from surplus money and capital outlay," Rogers said. "Rep. Roy Burrell secured a total of $3 million for the corridor."
Rogers said because there is also a high potential for federal funding, Providence has been contracted to give NLCOG four scenarios for the connective route.
"You have to look at several different alternatives," he said.
Another possibility, Rogers said, is to use the existing railroad right-of-way that goes through the area.
The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for late spring or early summer, Rogers said.
"We are going to take some aerial photographs and then have a series of public meetings … informal meetings," Rogers said. "Some will be for the communities, and some will be for the community at-large … the Shreveport-Bossier area. Then, we'll meet one-on-one if requested."
Rogers said the idea is to find out what the communities want from the corridor. "We will want their input heavily throughout this process," he said.
According to Rogers, every move made on the corridor is time sensitive, and that plays a large role in the process. The project is currently in what he calls Enhanced Stage Zero, which will give NLCOG all the feasibility analysis and environmental background work.
"Each phase gets time-stamped in that once you complete a certain phase, you either have to start the next phase or make a substantial effort toward that next phase in a certain time period," he said.
"We are expecting to receive the go-ahead to begin the study any day now," said Kent Rogers, executive director of NLCOG. "The 3-1/2-mile corridor to be studied is an area roughly between the Allen-Pete Harris Drive and Caddo-Ford streets straight across to Highway 1 and U.S. 71 at I-220." Rogers said the study, which is expected to take approximately two years, will include a series of community meetings to get citizens' input and will end with a final formal public hearing. The 3132 Loop and I-220, Rogers said, is the interim intended route for traffic coming into Shreveport at this point, but with the interstate's current traffic counts, he doesn't anticipate the loop being a "permanent" solution.
