The I-49 Lafayette Connector traverses a very heavily urbanized corridor within the heart of Lafayette. Recognizing the significance of this project to the City of Lafayette and the State of Louisiana, the DOTD has initiated a planning and conceptual design study to complete the Functional Plan for the Connector utilizing a Context Sensitive Solutions (CSS) approach. Key activities that will be undertaken to complete the Functional Plan include:

COMMUNITY & STAKEHOLDER OUTREACH

Traffic and Geometrics Studies

Bridge Concept Studies

Study of Impacts to Railroads and Lafayette Regional Airport

Implementation Planning
