Project Overview: $13.2M - La. 1: Leeville to Golden Meadow, Phase 2E – This project will complete the buildout of the elevated La. 1 intersection in Leeville. It will also widen the existing mainline structure and extend northward. La. 1 serves as the sole evacuation route for lower Lafourche Parish and the barrier island of Grand Isle. It also is the only access route to Port Fourchon, the nation’s premier intermodal energy port, and the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, the nation’s only offshore oil port. It has been designated as a high-priority corridor by the U.S. Congress based on its critical energy infrastructure. The project was let in December 2017.
