Baton Rouge Natural Gas Infrastructure Replacement Program

Minimal Disruption to Street Projects, Traffic

  • Entergy Louisiana is using a drilling technology called directional boring that eliminates trenching, the traditional and extremely disruptive method for installing pipe that disturbed streets and made access to homes and businesses difficult.
  • It will affect only small sections of sidewalks. This minimizes potential conflicts with future street repaving, water or sewer projects.


  • Instead of using a single-main configuration, Entergy Louisiana installs two mains, one on each side of city streets. This configuration dramatically reduces the need to conduct street work, minimizing any disruption of traffic.
  • Only small sections of sidewalks will be affected. Cuts into the sidewalks will measure approximately 4 feet by 4 feet or 4 feet by 6 feet. The smaller cuts basically measure the size of a single sidewalk panel.
