Road work project on LA 73 almost complete

Commuters worried about slow downs during school

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 10:25am

A road construction project in Ascension Parish is almost finished after a four month delay.

The Department of Transportation and Development says the $3 million improvement to the LA 73, LA 621 and the I-10 intersection will widen the roads.

Crews began working on the busy roads back in October, but unforeseen delays pushed back the completion date about four months.

Folks concerned about congestion near the local school need not worry. Officials say the work won't start each day until after school begins.
