According to NOLA.com, President Joe Biden will be visiting New Orleans and Lake Charles on Thursday May 6, 2021. The details of Biden's trip have not been laid out but but in New Orleans he’s likely to highlight a proposal to remove the aging Interstate 10 overpass above Claiborne Avenue.

The White House notes that Louisiana earns a D+ grade for its infrastructure.

“In Louisiana there are 1,634 bridges and over 3,411 miles of highway in poor condition,” a White House fact sheet says. “Since 2011, commute times have increased by 9.3% in Louisiana and on average, each driver pays $667 per year in costs due to driving on roads in need of repair.”

Biden outlines his plans in FACT SHEET: The American Jobs Plan found here.
