Roddy Rd Safety Widening (US 61 to LA 935)

Project # MA-17-02 | updated September 6, 2019

This 1.3 mile section of Roddy Rd. from US 61 (Airline Hwy.) to LA 935 will be widened to improve safety. The project includes new bridges over the New River Canal and Bayou Narcisse and intersection improvements.

These intersection improvements include Left turn lanes at LA 429 east, west, and northbound; and Right turn lanes at LA 429 on north and southbound approaches. Intersection improvements at LA 935 have been removed from the scope of the project as they are not warranted at this time, per DOTD.
