What's Wrong with This Photo?

This is what we are talking about. WHY DOES I-49 END AT
I-20 (near Murphy Street). Okay that Pavement was completed in 1994 (almost 15 years ago)....and that legislation was passed in the 1970's (some 30+ Years Ago) by then Governor Edwin Edwards, who wanted the road to go 3 1/2 miles further straight ahead.... before I-220 was even built.

When I-49 is SOON BUILT from the ARKANSAS BORDER SOUTH...let's just keep on coming....and build a 6-lane I-49 Connector....to tie it in to I-49 at I-20 (at Murphy Street). WHEN WE DO THIS, THE WHOLE ARK-LA-TEX REGION IS THE BIG WINNER!!! THE HECK WITH STOPPING AT I-220....THAT'S A LOSERS MENTALITY.

THE ARK-LA-TEX REGION IS A BIG-TIME WINNER....FOR YEARS TO COME, BUT ONLY IF WE BUILD THE WHOLE INTERSTATE 49.

LOUISIANA CITIZENS DESERVE A FULLY COMPLETED I-49...JUST WEST OF DOWNTOWN
SHREVEPORT....FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE WHOLE REGION.

ANYTHING LESS...AND THE CITIZENRY SAYS: "WE ARE NOT BEING ALLOWED TO REACH
OUR FULL POTENTIAL".

Your thoughts?

Call Governor Bobby Jindal. Call Mayors Cedric Glover and Lo Walker. Call Chamber of Commerce President Dick Bremer. Call NLCOG Director Kent Rogers. Call the Head of the Louisiana Department of Transportation William Ankner.

Better yet, call the local media: KTBS-TV 3, KTAL-TV 6, KSLA-TV 12, The Shreveport Times, The Forum News Weekly, KEEL Radio News Department.

STATE YOUR OPINION....RIGHT NOW.... *** The Phase 0 Study is being done as we speak (September 2008)!!!*** NOW IS THE TIME TO BE HEARD....WHATEVER YOUR OPINION IS. *** TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE *** THE 11 O'CLOCK HOUR...THE HOUR OF RECKONING APPROACHES.

AND MAKE SURE IT'S YOUR OWN PERSONAL OPINION....AND NOT FORCED ON YOU BY A
POLITICAL POWER BROKER WHO IS PROVIDING YOU LESS THAN TRUTHFUL INFORMATION TO SHIELD YOU AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC FROM WHAT APPEARS TO BE THE BASIC TRUTH. AND OH YES, THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THE POLITICAL HEAVYWEIGHTS WON'T DIRECTLY TELL YOU....THEY WILL SEND AN INTERMEDIARY TO DO THE "DIRTY WORK". IT'S CALLED "DIVIDE AND CONQUER".

IT'S YOUR TURN TO BE HEARD!!!
