Each year, the U.S. Department of Transportation redistributes federal funding. DOTD received the redistributed funding due to being successful in obligating the full amount of its federal funding for last federal fiscal year, which spanned from Oct. 1, 2009, through Sept. 30, 2010. The redistributed funding was allocated towards the La. 1 widening project because it is shovel-ready.

Work on the estimated $20 million to $30 million project will involve widening 5.2 mi of La. 1 from two to four lanes with a median between La. 173 (Dixie Blanchard Road) and La. 169 (Dixie-Mooringsport Road).
