Motorists in the Capital City know the challenges that traffic can bring on a daily basis. 

The BRAC 2019 Economic Outlook report states that traffic is “the top obstacle for business growth in the Capital Region.”

For the third year in a row, traffic is the #1 concern of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber. 

“We hear from the business community over and over that relieving traffic congestion is their top priority. East Baton Rouge has the opportunity on Saturday to vote for MovEBR, a potentially transformative initiative aimed directly at addressing this problem,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of BRAC.

The Baton Rouge Area Chamber said the information for the BRAC 2019 Economic Outlook report was gathered “from BRAC’s annual survey of the business community.”

BRAC’s full Economic Outlook will be delivered next week on Thursday, December 13.
