The LA 1 Coalition hopes to join the 4 percent as it seeks federal grant funding to begin the second phase of constructing an elevated road from Golden Meadow to Fourchon. The coalition, made up of advocates who say elevating La. Highway 1 is necessary to maintain a reliable connection to the oil-exploration hub at Port Fourchon, applied for $18.4 million in Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant funds. The application is among 828 requests totaling $14.1 billion in funding through the TIGER program, according to figures released one week ago by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The program is authorized to award $527 million, or 3.7 percent of requested funds, within the next few months. Of that number, at least $140 million must be awarded to rural areas, which includes the coalition’s project site.
