In this enhanced Weather Radar Map, I-49 North in red to Shreveport completes to I-20 as of 1994. The Arkansas South portion in red completes to 4 miles of the Louisiana Border as of 2006.

Seen below is a snapshot of the Official Northwest Louisiana Council of Governmts (NLCOG) Map for 1-49 development North.

1. Why is the 3.5 mile Inner-City Connector absent from this Official NLCOG Map seen below?

2. June 4, 2007, the day before the Public Forum in Baton Rouge hosted by the House and Senate of the State of Louisiana, why did a news item mysteriously appear on the NLCOG Web Site mentioning the I-49 Inner-City Connector for the first time after the initial study in 1977. Click here to go to the News Item for the limited information at NLCOG as of June 7, 2007.

3. The NLCOG article is only currently an announcement of information yet to be posted, if any, seen at the bottom of the site page, also only available by clicking on NLCOG Site I-49 LOGO.
