March 11, 2014 marked the fourth anniversary of the I-49 petition launch. To date we have 1,600 petition signatures

continue the momentum of collecting signatures and support to show federal officials as we pursue funding to build the road.

Signatures on the petition are ranging from as far away as Sioux City, Iowa; Lees Summit, MO; Metairie, LA and Boyce, LA. It is
important to show elected officials that many people want to see I-49 completed for economic development, tourism,
transportation efficiency and safer travel in general. The benefits to our national economy are too numerous to mention!

Please continue to encourage others to sign the petition and forward it to their friends.
Be sure to follow us on Facebook. Periodic posts show new signatures counts
and important updates.

The goal of this effort is to impress upon elected and appointed officials the importance of the completion of Interstate 49
and the impact it will have on the local, state and national economy. We also want to demonstrate that the entire region
is working together to ensure the completion of this project. As strategic opportunities arise, a list of those who have signed
this petition will be presented to the appropriate officials for the sole purpose of seeking support and funding for completion
of the I-49 Interstate. Your personal information will never be shared with anyone or used for any reason other than support
for and communication about the Interstate 49 effort.

Interstate 49 is 80% complete! Of the remaining 20%, 
5% is under construction and 15% needs funding. 


What can you do to make Federal Highway Administration officials
and Arkansas State Highway Commissioners aware of the importance
of completing I-49?
