Doing Business

St. Landry Parish is conveniently situated just four hours East of Houston, two hours West of New Orleans and 20 minutes north of I-10 and the Lafayette area, at the crossroads of I-49 and US Hwy. 190. Two general airports and a shallow port with barge and dock access on the Atchafalaya River make the parish attractive for industry.
 
The parish has seen employment growth in the healthcare, arts/entertainment/recreation (culture), transportation/warehousing, real estate rental & leasing, and utilities sectors over the last decade. It is in good position to capture outgrowth from the Lafayette area.
