Poll: 80 Percent Of Lafayette Recognizes Importance Of I-49 Completion
In a poll taken of registered voters in Lafayette Parish, 81 percent said the completion of the I-49 South Connector Project is important to the future of the Parish.
The poll--conducted by Vermilion Marketing and Research--was conducted in January, with 500 registered voters responding.
Nine percent of the respondents thought the project's completion shows little importance to the parish's future--while eight percent were swayed neither way.
The project--which is still in its infant stages-- is aimed to connect Lafayette and New Orleans through the current Highway 90 corridor.
The poll, commissioned by One Acadiana, is being used for market analysis purposes.
