Transport Project Coming To La.

The Federal Aviation Administration (news - web sites) has OK'd a plan to find a location for an intermodal transportation system between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

The project is an international airport tied to ship, rail, and highway transportation. The Louisiana Airport Authority says it is a jumpstart for the Millennium Port and the key to boosting the area's economy.

"This is the magnet that will cause the millennium project to move faster," Airport Authority spokesman Glenn Smith said. "Because when the containers are delivered, we're actually going to open them. We're going to do something with what's in them. We're not just going to put them on a rail and carry them out of here."

Some predict that the project will create as many as 20,000 permanent jobs.
