BELLE CHASSE, LA (WVUE) - Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao will join Senator Bill Cassidy in New Orleans Wednesday to announce $45 million that will go toward improvements to The Belle Chasse Bridge and tunnel project.

Back in June the federal government approved the state's application for the project.

The governor's office said the funds would pay for a fixed four lane bridge to replace the tunnel.

Cassidy and Chao will also discuss infrastructure needs in Louisiana.
