LaDOTD's CSS Policy was approved on May 26, 2006, and can be found here.
Other Public Involvement Techniques:
On some of their larger projects, LaDOTD has instituted websites and toll-free hotlines. They currently have a rural project office on I-69 in North Louisiana. On two major urban projects, they have had project offices and major charrette efforts. LaDOTD has also used visual aids, such as computer simulations and video flyovers, as a tool to enhance public understanding of complex projects.
LaDOTD's Stakeholder Involvement Plan is expected to be updated in the near future.
