Blackstar Proves The Case for President Biden's American Jobs Plan Prioritizing Racial Equity in Infrastructure Jobs
Blackstar provided signal detection upgrades for Lafayette’s predominantly minority inhabited northside and Baton Rouge’s Florida Blvd community, which have historically been systematically discriminated against. This system aids in decreasing unnecessary stops, delays, and ultimately improves emissions. Specifically, Blackstar supplied 171 wireless magnetometer vehicle detection systems throughout Lafayette and also set up and installed the adaptive traffic control system software.
Additionally, Blackstar provided traffic control cabinets and traffic system management upgrades for New Orleans’ District E, which includes historically Black communities that were hit hard by Hurricane Katrina.
