CSRS Awarded 2022 Environmental Excellence Award by the Federal Highway Administration


The Federal Highway Administration has awarded CSRS the 2022 Environmental Excellence Award for the University Avenue Corridor Study and Roadway Improvement Project. The award was bestowed to CSRS, Lafayette Consolidated Government, Acadian Planning Commission, and Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development District Three in cooperation with HRI, Bridge Ministries, and Lafayette Utility Systems.


In 2016, Lafayette Consolidated Government partnered with the Acadian Planning Commission's Metropolitan Planning Organization to conduct a corridor study along University Avenue utilizing Federal transportation funding. In conducting this work, the project team actively engaged minority communities to address injustices of the past and decades of neglect and envision a new transportation facility that would provide safe and equitable access for community members while serving as a catalyst for 932 million In commercial redevelopment.
