Project Overview:Staring Lane is currently a two lane roadway that widens to include a center left turn lane at several intersections. This project will widen Staring Lane to a four lane section with sidewalks and raised median from Highland Road to Perkins Road. The project will require replacement of the existing bridge crossing Dawson Creek with two new bridges to accommodate both southbound and northbound traffic on Staring Lane. When combined with project F, Staring Lane Extension 1, from Burbank Drive to Highland Road, the project will provide a north-south link from I-10/Essen Lane directly to Burbank Drive. The project will also connect to the existing and proposed Perkins Road improvements identified on the City-Parish Major Street Plan.
