The Louisiana Highway 1 (LA 1) Corridor in southern Lafourche Parish, is America's Access to Energy.

The vulnerable, two-lane highway is the only
roadway supporting Port Fourchon
and the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP),
which combined, service over 18 percent of America’s
total supply of crude oil and natural gas. Recognizing
that LA 1 is extremely significant to the uninterrupted
flow of energy and to the billions of federal dollars
generated in Outer-Continental Shelf royalty revenues,
the U.S. Congress named this critical infrastructure to the
federal list of "High Priority Corridors" in 2001. Completing
the LA 1 Improvement Project is critical to preserving this
nation’s long-term energy supply for every family in America.
