Today, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced the completion of a $5.8 million project that constructed frontage roads along a 2.97-mile section of U.S. 90. This area is the future I-49 South, between Darnall Road and La. 85 in Iberia Parish.
The construction of frontage roads along U.S. 90 is a preliminary step in the construction of the I-49 Extension between Lafayette and New Orleans.
DOTD Secretary Sherri H. LeBas said, "The construction of frontage roads along the U.S. 90 corridor are such an integral component and really help in bringing us closer to our ultimate goal of completing the I-49 South project."
