Highlights Project’s Economic Impact as part of Invest in America Bus Tour
SHREVEPORT, La. – U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx today joined state and local officials at the “Segment K” I-49 extension project as part of his Invest in America, Commit to the Future bus tour, calling it an investment in Louisiana’s economic future that could be replicated across the country if Congress would support a long-term transportation bill. “Segment K” is part of a corridor that, when completed, will connect the ports of Shreveport and New Orleans to markets around the world. The Secretary’s visit is part of a multi-state tour highlighting the urgent need to invest in America’s transportation infrastructure at a time when the nation’s surface transportation programs are set to expire and the Highway Trust Fund is running out of money.
