I think they are building a pre-cast detour bridge currently over Beaver Creek on GS Rd. A new bridge is going to be built at the current location and I think it is being built to accommodate future widening of GS Rd. I think the transition down to existing 2-lane GS Rd is close to the new Dollar General store.

As for the intersection, I am sure that it will F up traffic like Magnolia Bridge/GS Rd intersection. The right turn lane coming from Florida Blvd direction looks small. I bet the left turn lanes with signal will run well for about 1 year until someone screws with timing or traffic patterns grow more than expected. I wish they would have made an overpass or put a roundabout at that location.

When you are willing to pay for a toll to cross to help pay for it.

I'd be willing to add another 1c sales tax for that.

either way, if this is a prelude to four-laning GS to Magnolia Bridge i am all for it.


The local Central Paper had an article last week about DOTD announcing plans to extend Hooper across the Amite and having 4 lanes between Sullivan and GS. I would think they plan on going with 4 on GS from Hooper all the way back to Sullivan at the thruway.

I wouldnt get my hopes up on 4 lane GWS just yet... They just repaved that whole section of GWS. I doubt they would have done that if there was any plans to rip it up and 4 lane

That would be a state project.

I doubt any city would voluntarily pay to build a new bridge into Livingston.

The article made it sound like it's a way off and even then I wouldn't expect anything realistically in the next 10 years.
