The debate over I-49 in Shreveport has the city divided.

State Representative Roy Burrell supports the inner city connection, but residents of Allendale are fighting the plan. They claim the proposed raised freeway will displace hundreds of families.

Rep. Burrell argues that looping traffic around Shreveport on 3132 and 220 could cost the region as much as $1 billion dollars. Burrell will talk to Robert and Erin in the mornings about the latest study on the economic impact Friday morning (March 28) at 6:40 a.m.

Do you think I-49 should be built through Shreveport's innercity?
