Terrebonne Refinement PlanVirtual Workshop

Highway Alignment Concept Workshop

Welcome to the Alignment Concept Workshop room.

The purpose of this room is to identify concepts for near- and long-term US 97 corridor alignment to:

  • Improve safety
  • Enhance access to businesses and residents
  • Maintain/improve freight mobility
  • Provide safe crossings for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians

While you are here, please:

  • Review the example corridor alignment boards (on the right side of the page)
  • Understand the magnitude of costs associated with certain highway elements
  • Print the following documents and draw your recommended alignment:

Bypass Corridor Alignment Concept

Main Street/Couplet Corridor Alignment Concept

Key Questions to Consider

  • Where does the community ultimately want or need the the US 97 highway alignment?

        -Main Street – How would additional lanes impact the community by widening US 97 from two to four lanes within Terrebonne? 
        -Couplet – How would a couplet utilizing US 97 for two southbound lanes and 11th Street for two northbound lanes impact traffic flow and congestion and the community?  
        -Bypass – Where might a bypass of the community be located?  
  • What form should the highway take to address long-term capacity and community needs?

  • How do these alternative alignments fit within existing right-of-way, address future traffic needs, and meet the identified goals, objectives, and evaluation criteria of the project?
