A Message from Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome
When I was elected Mayor-President in 2016, I pledged to address the transportation challenges facing Baton Rouge. That promise was realized just three years later. The MOVEBR program represents the single largest infrastructure initiative in the history of our City-Parish. In time, the program will deliver less congested corridors, safer streets, and enhanced quality of life for all residents. MOVEBR will be the industry standard of excellence for delivering transportation, key to building our economy. Inclusion is important to me in this initiative. For that reason, I pushed for projects in every part of the community and engaged a diverse network of small businesses to share in the work. All of our citizens and business leaders should have the opportunity to benefit from such a significant endeavor. MOVEBR not only addresses the transportation challenges we face today, but also plans for the future.
