Transportation Initiatives

Connecting to Global Markets

The Monroe Chamber has a long history of partnering with several groups to improve the transportation  and infrastructure in our region. Access to markets is critical for the success of any business. A good transportation system includes highways, railroads, ports and airports. When all of these systems flow smoothly, business flourishes.

The Monroe Chamber works throughout the year with the City of Monroe, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, the Greater Ouachita Port, our congressional delegation, our state legislators and the northeast Louisiana business community to secure funding for important infrastructure projects that will improve the flow and safety of traffic throughout our community.
