I am proud to serve on the I-49 Task Force, that is dedicated to a central lifeline for South Louisiana.The project was originally scheduled for completion by 2010. So, what happened? The simple answer is that politics got in the way.

The I-49 project is critical to Louisiana's economic development, because it is truly the "energy highway" and is a key part of economic growth for our entire state. The I-49 corridor supplies the rest of the country with energy products from Louisiana and the surrounding area; this highway is a crucial part of our economic viability. The completion of I-49 as a limited-access highway will contribute substantially to economic development, but the most important result will be the lives it will save. I will make the timely completion of the project a priority, and I will enlist the help of others in accomplishing this goal.
