I-49 Connector planners in Lafayette try ‘thinking beyond the pavement’

It’s been 17 years since the installation of road signs hopefully proclaiming U.S. 90 through Lafayette as the “Future Corridor” of Interstate 49.

 It will likely be many more years before completion of I-49 South, but design work is beginning in earnest to iron out the details of what it will look like and how a new elevated interstate might be built through the city of Lafayette without badly disrupting what’s already here or becoming a wall that divides the city.
