I-49 Inner City Connector in Shreveport may not happen
For over a decade, the I-49 connector has stirred controversy in the City of Shreveport. During the most recent North Louisiana Council of Government’s Meeting a new route was proposed.
According to John Perkins a Board Advisor with Allendale Strong, a spokesperson with Providence Engineering, said the routes must be reconsidered due to legal issues with the 1966 Transportation Act. The act ensures historic properties are preserved which is why Perkins feels the inner city I-49 corridor will be scrapped.
