LES Supports Transportation Funding Initiative

Louisiana faces critical transportation needs, including existing infrastructure maintenance and new capacity to accommodate the state’s growth. 

Business and industry groups understand that strong infrastructure networks create jobs, increases safety, and improves quality of life - but our state has fallen behind. Louisiana ranks among the bottom five states on every measure of roadway condition, costing the average driver as much as almost $2,500 per year in some areas. To make matters worse, by 2019, without an increase in revenue, Louisiana will fail to produce enough local funds to match federal dollars for transportation projects, leaving millions of federal funds on the table for other states.
 
For less than the cost of a cup of coffee a week, we can fix this. Legislation to increase DOTD's transparency and accountability has been paired with a gas tax increase that is sufficient to address the state's long term needs and maintain Louisiana’s economic competitiveness.

The Louisiana Engineering Society supports legislation that will improve Louisiana's development by investing in transportation.
