Here’s something you know: Louisiana’s roads and bridges are crumbling.
That’s one thing obvious to citizens and visitors alike, and it’s gone from being embarrassing to flat-out dangerous.
But what you may not know is just how bad it is, by the numbers:
- At least 38% of our roads are in poor or worse condition.
- 1,821 bridges are structurally deficient or functionally obsolete
- 15% of the state’s bridges are “substandard”
- 12th highest in the nation highway fatality rate in 2017
Something must be done…and we need YOUR help!
Something people across the political spectrum agree upon…maintaining roads and bridges is a core function of government. It affects us all – our families, and our children. It is time for legislators in Baton Rouge to stop ignoring the issue and enact a plan to stop the crumbling of our roads and bridges.
