We’re Creating Economic Opportunity Along the I-49 Midway Corridor.
The I-49 Midway Corridor is halfway between New Orleans and Shreveport, connecting communities throughout Louisiana with Arkansas, Missouri and Texas. I-49 provides direct linkage to U.S. Interstate 10, U.S. Routes 190 and 167, six Louisiana Highways and several major arterials. Development of the Corridor creates opportunities for economic growth by way of infrastructure investment, improved access and communications capabilities, and site development - all designed to attract business growth within the region.
St. Landry Economic Development, Acadiana Planning Commission, and the cities of Washington, Opelousas, Sunset, Grand Coteau, Carencro, and Lafayette have joined together with local stakeholders to create a vision for the Corridor, and to promote investment and economic development within the region. Providing a broad spectrum of resources, assets, and services to local, regional and national businesses and corporate entrepreneurs, the I-49 Midway group is united in the adoption and implementation of the comprehensive corridor plan. Transportation access, land use, sewer, finance, water, transit, fiber optics, workforce availability and training options, electrical power grid, aesthetics and even cultural advantages are readily available to meet business needs. Within this site interested parties will have access to meeting and planning information, maps and data, strategic plans, available sites and incentives.
