Public input needed on latest I-49 Inner City Connector plan | Community Spirit
Shreveport residents are asked to provide feedback on the latest plan for the I-49 Inner City Connector. There will be three meetings discussing the plans:
- Tuesday, December 11 at 6 p.m. at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church; 1558 Buena Vista Street (A block north of Ford Street between Allen and Pierre)
- Wednesday, December 12 at 11 a.m. at Mt. Canaan Baptist Church, 1666 Alston Street (A block north of Ford Street and Webster)
- Thursday, December 13 at Noon at the Shreveport Chamber of Commerce, 400 Edwards Street (Corner of Edwards and Travis)
This is the second set of public meetings on the LA Department of Transportation and Development environmental impact study. These meetings will show residents new interstate options developed by engineers since last year’s initial round of public meetings.
Residents will see three options for the highway expansion and will vote on which plan they like.
The I-49 Inner City Connector will be approximately 3.6 miles long, providing a link between the I-20/I-49 interchange and I-49's eventual interchange with I-220 over Cross Lake.
