This review is based upon the project priorities established by the highway needs analysis. The Highway Needs and Priority Study was done in order to determine the estimated cost of improving state maintained roads in Louisiana which do not meet a specified minimum tolerable condition for a particular functional class. Act 334 provides for a firm priority listing of the first ensuing year and tentative priorities for each of the next five subsequent years. This provides advice on the status of highway projects contemplated or under preparation.
These public hearings will be held in accordance with Act 334 of the 1974 regular session of the Louisiana Legislature and conducted by the Joint Legislative Committee on Transportation, Highways, and Public Works.
A copy of the Preliminary Program for Fiscal Year 2004-05 is available for review by interested persons at each DOTD District Administrator’s office, as shown in the table below, or also at the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development Headquarters Building, 1202 Capitol Access Road, Room 236, Baton Rouge, LA, 70802.
