Two upcoming events for an engaged community

I-49 Connector open house set for Nov. 30 at Progressive Community Outreach Center and update on new airport terminal will be held the following day at Bell Helicopter.

On Wednesday, Nov. 30 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Lafayette Connector Partners and Louisiana DOTD will host a public open house for the I-49 Lafayette Connector on at Progressive Community Outreach Center (125 Gallian Street, Lafayette).

The focus will be the recent technical evaluations of the two main design concepts, and the 23 Potential Design Modifications along the Connector corridor. The open house will feature a looping power point presentation and stations where individuals can get details on the project, so you won’t need to stay for the entire time block. Comments from the public will be captured for the official record.

You can review the information on the project website in advance of the open house here.

The pertinent files to review are for the Community Working Group Meeting #9 10-27-16, and CWG Meeting #10 11-3-16.

A day later, on Dec. 1 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., One Acadiana will host a community update on Lafayette Regional Airport’s new terminal at Bell Helicopter (101 Jet Ranger X Dr.). The event is free and open to the public. You can register your attendance here.
