State and Industry Partnership Funds Highway Construction
State and local officials, and members of the LA 1 Coalition marked the start of the next phase of the LA Highway 1 Improvement Project today at a groundbreaking ceremony in Leeville.
Phase 2E will widen the existing elevated highway structure at Leeville to provide a broader curve for motorists traveling southbound and will extend the existing elevated highway to the north, which will connect with the future elevated LA 1 to Golden Meadow. Completion of the $13.3 million project is expected in early 2020, with $6.6 million in construction funds provided to the State by industry partners, the LA 1 Coalition, and the Greater Lafourche Port Commission. To date, eleven miles from Port Fourchon to Leeville within the planned 17-mile elevated highway project from Port Fourchon to Golden Meadow has been completed.
