St. Tammany seeks federal funding to widen I-12

ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WVUE) - St. Tammany Parish wants $36 million in federal funding to widen I-12 between Highway 190 and Highway 21.

The parish officially submitted the application.

In may, that stretch of road was the scene of an accident that killed four people.

Parish President Pat Brister first asked Governor Edwards to move up a project to widen the interstate.

The governor said there's no money and asked North Shore lawmakers to help secure more funds.
