LAFAYETTE — Officials with One Acadiana have made no secret as to the two-year-old organization’s top priority, the completion of the I-49 South project.
The project will ultimately extend I-49 through Highway 90. The I-49 Connector through Lafayette is a major part of that project.
The effort received a boost Monday, with the formation of the “Connect Lafayette Coalition.” The coalition is made up of numerous area organizations.
One Acadiana President Jason El Koubi made the announcement during a press conference Monday morning at the site of the new Destiny of Faith Church, which is currently under construction about a mile from where the I-49 Connector will run through Lafayette.
