There is no doubt about it roads bring jobs and jobs bring people and people pay taxes and that’s how regions grow. Here in Acadiana one of our biggest opportunities for growth is the further development of Interstate 49. This would extend America’s Energy Corridor from the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico to the heartland of America.It would also help in evacuations during hurricane season. Are you willing to pay now for a pay off later?

There is no estimate yet for the total project, but the cost of the elevated stretch through Lafayette has been estimated at 700 million.
