Updates for 2009 (Mississippi DOT Assisting)

Will there be changes to Louisiana's contraflow maps this year? Yep!

Amber Hebert,
Public Information Officer for the LA Department of Transportation and Development, says that they are "extending the maps further into Mississippi."

THIS IS GREAT NEWS! Working with Mississippi Department of Transportation should alleviate some of the evacuation bottlenecks we saw during Gustav's evacuation. We'll update as soon as the maps are published.
