Welcome to the official website for the I-49 Inner City Connector Project. We will be updating this website regularly to correspond with progress in the project schedule. Please check back periodically for updated information, maps, and event information.

We have entered the planning and environmental stage (Stage 1) of this project. Please check the Update Section below for current project information and new meeting dates.

The Project: The I-49 Inner City Connector Project is part of the I-49 Corridor which runs from Winnipeg, Canada to New Orleans, Louisiana. The I-49 Inner City Connector will be a new interstate facility approximately 3.6 miles in length. It is proposed to intersect Shreveport in order to connect I-49 at the I-20 interchange with I-49 North in the vicinity of the I-220 interchange.
