Update: Governor’s task force on transportation

On July 12, the I-49 South Coalition was present at the first meeting of the Governor’s Task Force on Transportation Infrastructure Investment. The Task Force was created to research, identify, and make recommendations on achieving sustainable recurring funding levels to address Louisiana’s $12.7 billion backlog in highway and bridge maintenance needs and on funding the construction of critical infrastructure projects across the state.

Throughout this process, the I-49 South Coalition will continue to be engaged in advocating for the completion of I-49 South as Louisiana’s top transportation investment priority.
