The Zachary Taylor Parkway Commission was created by the Louisiana Legislature in 1992 as a political subdivision of the state. With equal representation from the parishes along the Parkway corridor, the Commission is authorized to handle various responsibilities in connection with the parkway project.

The Zachary Taylor Parkway is a grassroots idea kept alive and nurtured by dedicated citizens like you. It started with a vision, but it has taken years of commitment and persistence by many individuals to maintain the Parkways as a viable project and to push successfully for federal and state government funding.
