NAME OF APPLICANT:  Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, c/o CSRS, LLC, Attn: Elliott Boudreaux, 8555 United Plaza Boulevard, Baton Rouge, LA 70809.      

LOCATION OF WORK:  The project is located along LA 511 (Jimmie Davis Highway) commencing 1.8 miles west of its intersection with LA 1 extending across the Red River to its intersection with US 71, in Section 14, Township 17 North, Range 13 West, in Bossier and Caddo Parishes, Shreveport, Louisiana within the Sunny Point watershed in hydrologic unit (HUC 11140202), as shown on the attached drawings (Latitude 32.4595 N, Longitude -93.6794 W).

CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested Department of the Army authorization to clear, grade, excavate and deposit fill and/or aggregate material to construct a new four-lane fixed span bridge over the Red River including improvements to LA 511.  In addition, the existing Jimmie Davis Bridge structure will be rehabilitated and repurposed into a linear park featuring bicycle and pedestrian access that will be compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act standards.   Approximately 26,050 cubic yards of stone, concrete and fill material would be deposited in waters of the U.S. to achieve elevation requirements.  A preliminary analysis has determined that the proposed project would impact approximately 6.8 acres of forested wetlands and 1.1 acres of emergent wetlands. 

MITIGATION: The applicant proposes to avoid additional direct impacts and minimize secondary impacts to the maximum extent practicable and has designed the project to avoid approximately 11 acres of jurisdictional aquatic resources.  The applicant will utilize best management practices for erosion and siltation control during and after the construction phase of the project.  As compensation for unavoidable wetland impacts, the applicant proposes to use a Corps-approved mitigation bank within the watershed of impact.  If authorized, the project will receive approval from all appropriate local drainage authorities and sewerage agencies.
