Project Study Area

The project area is focused on Interstate 12, Exit 10 at the southern end of Denham Springs. LA 3002 (South Range Avenue), is a four-lane arterial roadway with a two-way left-turn lane in the center. Three roadways intersect South Range Avenue in the vicinity of the interchange—Louisiana Highway 3003 (Rushing Road), Range 12 Boulevard, and Bass Pro Boulevard. The two boulevards are south of the interstate, serving a recently developed commercial complex anchored by Bass Pro Shops and Sam’s Club. Range 12 Boulevard has no outlet. Bass Pro Boulevard connects to LA 1032 (4H Club Road) to the west. North of the interchange, Rushing Road connects Range Avenue to 4-H Club Road at a point south of its intersection with U.S. 190 (Florida Avenue). It also connects Range Avenue to the segment of Louisiana Highway 16 known as Pete’s Highway. Construction limits of the proposed improvements that are under study are outlined in red (see below). Other study areas will be defined as needed or according to regulatory guidance.
