A new report that evaluates the current condition, use and funding of Louisiana’s highway transportation system will be released at a news conference in Baton Rouge at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 21, 2010.
The report, “Future Mobility in Louisiana: Meeting the State’s Need for Safe and Efficient Mobility,” analyzes road and bridge conditions, traffic congestion, economic development and job creation, highway safety, and transportation funding in Louisiana. TRIP’s report identifies needed transportation projects in the Baton Rouge area and throughout the state that can not move forward without additional transportation funding. TRIP is a national nonprofit transportation research group based in Washington, DC.
TRIP’s Frank Moretti will present the findings of the report at the news conference. Local officials will also be on hand to comment on the report.
