LSU Lakes Renovation to Begin Soon

LSU Lakes Project Website

Schematic Design Plan (Sasaki)

Flood Risk Reduction Design Plan (Stantec)

Sasaki Website - LSU Lakes Project Overview

quote:

Based on currently obtained funding, Phase 1 construction will focus on dredging five of the six lakes: City Park, Erie, Crest, Campus, and College Lakes. Additionally, a network of pedestrian and cyclist paths will be improved in certain areas to make the use of the lakes safer and more comfortable for all people.

Additional improvements and recreational amenities will be built along the length of the lake's edges and surrounding park spaces.


quote:

This summer, as part of testing dredging and placement of sediment, a portion of University Lake will be dredged to various depths and the sediment will be used to build an island in the lake. Heavy equipment and barges are currently on-site.

I genuinely hope those renderings end up being somewhat accurate. That would be an incredible addition to the area.

Agree 100%, however, I have no faith in any form of government and fully expect JBE or Broome to somehow frick it all up.

Absolutely. Just dredging the shallow areas + building a new bridge & dedicated walking paths will be a huge improvement. Anything else is lagniappe.

I hope this happens, and when it does, people will be proud enough of it to take care of it and NOT turn it into a trash dump !

I often drive around the lake on my way home when traffic is bad on the interstate. Even though the lake looks like crap now the scenery running on the paths around it is usually fantastic

I mean it’s definitely happening. Phase 1 is completely funded but I agree with your sentiment.

Using $5 million of federal money given to the state for help reducing the chances of a repeat of 2016's flooding to dredge the LSU lakes is peak Louisiana.

The lakes flow into Bayou Duplantier which flows into Dawson Creek which flows into Ward Creek, Bayou Manchac, etc.

Deepening the lakes will increase the capacity of the lakes which will help with flooding but okay.

The deepest one is only like 4 feet deep at the moment, so probably just one or two that have been really stuck in the mud.
