Transportation connectivity


The economy of Lafourche, like much of southern Louisiana, is based on by the industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Roads were designed to bring these products north. Roadways connect Thibodaux, the largest city within the parish, to two large cities outside of the Parish – Houma and New Orleans. Investment and development patterns have continued with emphasis along Bayou Lafourche. During the Plan’s public engagement efforts, people were asked to express their desires for the future of development within the Parish. Their feedback showed that a high priority should be placed on new road design standards (i.e. complete streets) and providing other modes of transportation in the future. The following two transportation goals have been established and serve as a focal point for key strategies
