SHREVEPORT, La. — U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx will tour the Interstate 49 North Segment K project Thursday in Shreveport.
Foxx is traveling across the country as part of the Invest in America, Commit to the Future bus tour. Organizers say the tour looks to showcase the importance of transportation investment at a time when the nation's transportation bill is set to expire and the Highway Trust Fund is running out.
Segment K completes a missing link on a section of the interstate and is part of a 36-mile project that the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has spent eight years developing.
Joining Foxx for Thursday's 3:30 p.m. visit will be state Transportation Secretary Sherri H. LeBas and Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover.
