LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -
The Lake Charles City Council received an update on the upcoming Ryan Street on-ramp project.
Steve Jiles with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development got council members up to speed on where the project stands.
According to Jiles, they're currently in the process of moving utilities and completing the right of way acquisition. He said once complete, it will make downtown more accessible from the interstate creating a north and south service road system. Jiles also said it will help develop the I-10 corridor in North Lake Charles.
"There's a lot of things that can be done in North Lake Charles to really enhance development. There aren't many urban freeways with 70,000 cars on them that have that kind of attraction," said Jiles.
Jiles expects the project to go out for bid in August with construction beginning some time in late fall.
