There will be an I-49 South Coalition Stakeholders' Meeting at the Patterson Civic Center at 3 pm on Monday, March 18th. The coalition to promotes, advocates, and identifies funding streams to ultimately complete I-49 South from I-49 in Lafayette to I-310 in Boutte. The meeting is open to the public, and they are encouraged to attend.
A secondary aspect of the project will be to fund and build a new I-10 bridge in Lake Charles and eventually link the new I-49 South with New Orleans through the GNO bridge.
The coalition is currently in the process of pitching these ideas to groups such as chambers, industrial groups, and other civic organizations so they can in turn recommend to their respective memberships.
