Phase 1 of the Apollo Road Extension for the City of Scott, LA was completed on April 30, 2020. The newly constructed roadway begins at the intersection of Apollo Road and Old Spanish Trail and ends at J. B. Road and is approximately one mile long.
The high-profile project is a boost for the region and the residents of the Scott community. Part of the city’s Master Plan, the Apollo Road Extension project is projected to have long-term economic and quality of life impacts on the area. Major drainage improvements, along with the newly created roadway, have created opportunities for residential and commercial developments along the route. The roadway is home to the new West Regional Library at 501 Old Spanish Trail with construction now underway for a major multi-use residential community along the route.
Siema Construction, LLC was the contractor on the project with C. H. Fenstermaker & Associates, L.L.C. working as engineer of record. Fenstermaker provided Engineering, Environmental, and Survey services on the project. Additionally, drone footage was captured by Fenstermaker’s Advanced Technologies team in order to document the progress of construction.
Plans are underway for the commencement of Phase II of the Apollo Road extension which will include a $5 million roundabout at Rue du Belier and Dulles Drive. This Phase II of the project is also a part of the city’s Master Plan and will extend Apollo from J.B. Road to Rue du Belier roundabout.
Fenstermaker Senior Engineer and Project Manager Jeanne Arceneaux-Hornsby, P.E., states, “We are excited to announce the official opening of Apollo Road in Scott. Phase I of the project is now complete and the roadway is opened to the public. It has been a great opportunity to work with the City of Scott on this project. As the engineer of record for Apollo Road, it has been an exciting and rewarding experience to work with City officials in executing their vision for this part of the City’s Master Plan.”
Scott Mayor Jan Scott Richard stated, “The was an area of land that we really wanted to build an artery to help with traffic and to increase our economic and residential capabilities. This was a major collaboration of efforts through many administrations, councilmen, and local leaders in conjunction with our engineers, Fenstermaker, and our contractor, SIEMA. We’re very proud to be able to put out a project that we think the community will enjoy.”
