I-49 Plans

Posted:

Supporters of completing I-49 from Lafayette to New Orleans are working to pull together a nonprofit coalition with a full time executive director to help move the project forward.

In the renewed push to complete I-49 South, industries that depend on the highway will be asked to be more involved in the project and the hired full-time director will keep the effort focused and on track.

But an estimated $5 billion dollars in work remains for the two most expensive portions - the partially elevated stretch through Lafayette and the southern leg from Raceland into the New Orleans area.
