DOTD and Opelousas looking to make the I-49, US 190 interchange safer
Posted on 12/2/2013 10:36:00 AM.
State and local officials have discussed ways to make the interstate 49 interchange safer at U-S 190 in Opelousas. Mayor Don Cravins says its a dangerous intersection and there's been over 40 accidents with injuries over the past few years. Cravins says part of the problem is that when the interchange was originally built, it was never fully completed.
 Cravins says there's been talk about improving the safety at the I-49--U-S 190 interchange for the last decade, but it's becoming more of a problem, because the traffic volume in that area has increased. The mayor says department of transportation engineers have indicated they could provide a short-term fix.
He is optimistic something will be done next year to make the I-49 interchange at U-S 190 safer
