Design Concepts Selected for I-10 City Park Lake Bridge

BATON ROUGE, LA — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has selected a preferred design for the I-10 bridge over City Park Lake in Baton Rouge and a preferred design for monument towers, which will accentuate the bridge. The selected designs are bridge Option C — the “arched panel” design — and monument tower Option A, which prominently features the pelican motif.

Both were the top scoring designs from the public preference poll offered online during the public comment period through the project website and in-person during a community open house event at the Dr. Leo S. Butler Community Center.

Bridge design Option C provides arched and rectangular exterior fascia panels, and arches between columns when viewed from beneath the bridge such as from Dalrymple or E. Lakeshore Drives. Monument tower design Option A pays tribute to the art deco architectural style of the Louisiana State Capitol building, and the prominent pelican motif references both the state bird, the brown pelican, and the American white pelicans that visit Louisiana's lakes seasonally.

The illustrative renderings of these concepts will now move forward into the design stage where they will be refined by engineers and architects. DOTD Secretary Dr. Shawn Wilson expresses his thanks to the public for participating in the bridge design poll, and looks forward to future engagement and feedback opportunities as DOTD delivers this project.
