Connector street plans moving forward

Posted April 24th, 2014 @ 1:26am

BATON ROUGE- City leaders agreed Wednesday, it is time to study a new way to get from Highland Road to Burbank.


The Metro Council approved moving forward with looking at possible connectors. Planners have already focused on Kenilworth or Seyburn Drive.


A previous WBRZ News 2 report showed that Kenilworth could be problematic because the city would need to remove a cemetery and hardware store for the street to extend over Highland and continue down to Burbank.


The Department of Public Works plans to make a decision on how to connect Highland and Burbank in the next six months.
