BATON ROUGE, La. (May 11, 2022) — The Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) today released a digital information hub on the new Mississippi River South Bridge and I-10 connectors to complete a south loop/bypass.

“A new Baton Rouge Area bridge is finally a near-term opportunity, and we want the community to be informed on the process,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of BRAC. “Addressing the Capital Region’s transportation crisis is not solely a business priority; it is a community-wide issue that drains area commuters of time and money. With a new bridge closer to reality than ever before, we want our communities to have the facts on project pace, funding goals, and the next steps.” 

The digital hub seeks to answer the community’s repeated questions on the plausibility of a new Mississippi River Bridge. Through facts, research, and solidified timelines, the hub details the tangible progress of a new bridge.
