Next Wednesday, August 3, there will be an Open House Public Meeting in conjunction with the I-49 Connector Project at the Progressive Community Outreach Center at 125 Gallian Street.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will have multiple exhibits for the public, a multi-media presentation and people working on the project who can answer questions.

The event will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

DOTD Secretary Shawn Wilson says,

“This meeting is an opportunity for the community to review all the refinement concepts under consideration and provide feedback. We want everyone to be engaged in a meaningful way such that we can get this important project moving forward.”

This is your chance to speak your mind about the 19 proposed refinement concepts for an alternative, and you can give your feedback on any modifications that you think the project requires.

At any time during the process, you can give your thoughts either at this event, by emailing staff at, or you can mail your thoughts to the following address:

Lafayette Connector Partners


P.O. Box 3136

Lafayette, La. 70502

If you plan to mail in your thoughts they must have a postmark that is no later than August 13, 2016. You must also include your name and address if you wish your comments to be used during the official process and record.
Anyone needing special assistance due to a disability needs to send that information to any of the site above by today.
