Edwards tours I-49 South progress
JEANERETTE — Gov. John Bel Edwards was in St. Mary Parish on Monday for a site visit to one of the interchanges that are part of the completion of the Interstate 49 South corridor.
Edwards met with State Department of Transportation and Development and local officials and several construction crew members to hear a briefing on the La. 318 interchange project on U.S. 90.
Part of the Geaux South program to turn U.S. 90 into an interstate, the ongoing project will convert the intersection into a full-access interchange that will reconstruct the existing U.S. 90 frontage roads to provide access to La. 318.
