The goal of CDC's Transportation Division is to work with communities, businesses, and citizens throughout the Ark-La-Tex to ensure that our area has a transportation system that is fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient, for today, tomorrow, and the future. To this end, CDC is available to work with interested parties to improve our local transportation facilities including local, state, and federal highways; rail service; ports; and airports. Current CDC projects include the extension of I-49 from Shreveport, LA, to Texarkana, TX; the extension of I-69 from Arkansas through Louisiana to Texas; and the extension of Amtrak service from Marshall, TX to Jackson, MS.
