DOTD (Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development) has released a website to allow the community to see the I-49 connector project’s design proposals.
The newly launched website comes as DOTD, along with national, regional, state, and local partners, are driving forward with CSS (Context Sensitive Solutions) for the I-49 Connector Project.
To include more stakeholders in the Context Sensitive Solutions process, DOTD has built a VR room that enables the community to view Connector’s design proposals.
The website features a virtual reality scale design of the 5.5-mile I-49 Connector. Website visitors will have a summary of the Connector and the capability to zoom in on recommended design features, such as bridges and abutment walls. The VR immersive experience enables viewers to view how structural components like barriers, piers, and walls would look with various proposed plans.
“The I-49 virtual reality website is an opportunity for all interested parties to have a more true-to-life vision of the Lafayette Connector. DOTD is excited to offer the public access to such an interactive tool. We wanted stakeholders in the Lafayette Connector to feel confident evaluating proposed design elements, and this technology is the best way for them to do that.” – Shawn Wilson, Ph.D., Secretary.
The VR website is assumed to feature heavily during the LCAG workshops and meetings.
