There will be temporary lane closures happening in both directions of I-49 beginning tonight (Feb. 26) and lasting Saturday, March 31, as DOTD crews perform repairs of various elevated bridge structures.
A proposal may soon be in the works to modify the interchange between I-49 and U.S. Highway 190 in Opelousas. These changes will make the interchange safer for motorist and help with increased traffic flow.
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 y
