The Louisiana Highway 1 (LA 1) Corridor in southern Lafourche Parish, is America's Access to Energy.

The vulnerable, two-lane highway is the only
roadway supporting Port Fourchon
and the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP),
which combined service over 18 percent of America’s
domestic crude oil production and 5 percent of natural gas production. 

Recognizing that LA 1 is extremely significant to the uninterrupted
flow of energy and to the billions of federal dollars
generated in Outer-Continental Shelf royalty revenues,
the U.S. Congress named this critical infrastructure to the
federal list of "High Priority Corridors" in 2001. Completing
the LA 1 Improvement Project is critical to preserving this
nation’s long-term energy supply for every family in America.
