Comment Policy

We encourage you to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas on the Interstate 12/Pete’s Highway environmental assessment. We review and post comments according to the policy below. The views expressed in comments reflect those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.

We want to publish your comments, but we expect them to be courteous. To that end, we have established the following policy.

We will not post comments that:

• contain obscene, indecent, or profane language;
• contain threats or defamatory statements;
• contain hate speech directed at race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion, or disability; or
• promote or endorse services or products. (Note that non-commercial links that are relevant to the topic or another comment are acceptable.)

Do not submit copyrighted or other proprietary material in any form unless you clearly indicate that you have permission to do so. By posting your comments or other work, you grant us and anyone viewing the website irrevocable permission to copy, distribute, make derivatives, display or perform the commenter’s work publicly and free-of-charge.

We recognize that the Internet is a 24/7 medium and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage resources, we intend to review and post comments from 8:30 am – 5:30 pm Monday through Friday except for on federal holidays. There may be a delay in the posting of comments to the site. The comment in-box will be monitored during normal business hours, and comments will be posted during that time.

We ask you to provide your name and e-mail address. We request your name to make it easier to establish a dialog, and your name will be published with your comments. We ask for your e-mail address so that we can contact you, but only if necessary. It is our policy not to publish or otherwise share your e-mail address.

Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. We encourage your participation in our discussion and look forward to an active exchange of ideas.

If you have questions about this comment policy or how we apply it, please contact us.
