Executing a prioritizedinfrastructure program

Working with our regional partners, 1A is developing strategies to achieve Acadiana’s infrastructure priorities, including a long-term plan for completing I-49 South. Completing I-49 South is Acadiana’s top priority.

Bringing the current U.S. 90 highway up to interstate standards will greatly improve a vital national link to “America’s Energy Corridor” and provide a game-changing investment for Louisiana with substantial benefits in economic development, safety, hurricane evacuation, and traffic congestion relief. Looking beyond the completion of I-49 South, there is an opportunity for Acadiana to begin aggressively planning for additional connectivity that complements the region’s interstates.
