re: Anyone know the plan for the Central Thruway at Greenwell Springs? (Posted on 1/28/13 at 1:11 pm to gmrkr5)
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.

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.
