NAME OF APPLICANT:  CITY OF BATON ROUGE, c/o AECOM, 8555 United Plaza Blvd., Suite 300, Baton Rouge, LA 70809, Attn: Jonathan Vavasseur. 

LOCATION OF WORK:  Road extension between Jefferson Highway and Tiger Bend Road in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, within East Baton Rouge Parish, within the Lake Pontchartrain Basin in hydrologic unit (HUC 08070202), as shown on the attached drawings. 

CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant has requested a Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct and maintain a roadway/highway extension and detention pond between Tiger Bend Road and Jefferson Highway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The project is proposed to alleviate localized traffic. Approximately 0.58 acre of wetlands will be cleared and filled for the construction of the highway extension. Additionally, approximately 0.85 acre of other wetlands will be filled for the construction of the highway extension. Secondary impacts to wetlands are expected to be minimal with required best management practices to reduce runoff and erosion.

A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would directly impact 0.58 acres of wetlands. 

MITIGATION: The applicant claims that they shifted their project alignment to the west to avoid impacts to wetlands. Additionally, the applicant states that they will purchase the appropriate type and quantity credits from an approved mitigation bank within the watershed for unavoidable impacts to wetlands.
