亚洲十大网上博彩 Celebrates Completion of $6.5 Million Major Infrastructure and Drainage Project

The next phase in 亚洲十大网上博彩’s exciting new look is finally complete! With community members and dignitaries from across the state on hand, 亚洲十大网上博彩 cut the ribbon welcoming guests onto the new 亚洲十大网上博彩 Plaza, the culmination of a major infrastructure capital project.

Over the last 18 months, construction has been ongoing across 亚洲十大网上博彩’s campus to overhaul an aging drainage system and redirect the flow of traffic entering campus. The primary focus of the $6.5 million project was to install an in-ground drainage system connecting to waterways leading off-campus. Many students and faculty can attest to the standing water that used to plague areas of campus during moderate rain showers. The new drainage system efficiently whisks water away from the heart of campus, rendering roads and sidewalks accessible even in inclement weather.After the subterranean system was installed, road crews provided roads across the whole campus with a smooth, new asphalt overlay. New street lighting was also installed lining the roadways. 

The pinnacle of the project is the new grand entrance to campus on Hwy 71 South and the adjacent pedestrian plaza. Visitors are now welcomed into campus along a divided entry that spills onto a spacious roundabout. Just beyond lies the beautiful brick and pavement 亚洲十大网上博彩 Plaza that welcomes pedestrians down a wide, tree-lined boulevard. Once the new Student Success Center is built on the south side of campus, this plaza will serve as one of the main arteries for students walking through campus.

Other improvements accompanying the project include a second roundabout at the intersection of Grady Britt Dr. and Garry Tisdale Dr., designed to ease the flow of traffic at the front of campus. Additionally, a new 110-spot parking lot was constructed south of the new grand entrance that will service the future Student Success Center.

亚洲十大网上博彩 is indebted to the LSU Board of Supervisors, the Central Louisiana Legislative Delegation, the Louisiana National Guard, and the Office of the Governor for supporting this historic endeavor.
