The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has released a map of I-49 South from Lafayette to Berwick which depicts areas currently under construction, completed areas, areas that are being studied and potential projects. Click here to view the map.
This week, the department announced it's looking for a design-builder to build the next section of I-49 South from just north of Ambassador Caffery Pkwy. to Albertson Pkwy. in Lafayette Parish. The road will be widened from four to six lanes, and the project potentially includes building frontage roads and overpasses.
The costs is between $75 and $85 million. DOTD anticipates awarding the project to a design-build firm no later than January 2014. Click here for more information on the project.
