Yesterday Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy was at The White House with President Joe Biden and a group of fellow senators as they agreed to a bipartisan deal on a massive package to repair the country’s bridges and roads.
And Senator Cassidy hinted that a new Mississippi River Bridge could possibly become a reality.
The $579 billion plan has new money for bridges, airports, train stations and public transit, and to expand broadband internet or rebuild power grids.
There are no details on the actual wording of the bill just yet. But Cassidy says if congress does pass the bill, a new Mississippi River Bridge and I-10 Bridge in Lake Charles, could become a reality.
