Roadwork To Begin In St. Tammany Parish

Those that commute from St. Tammany Parish will be affected by a new project for roadway improvement that started on January 31, 2019. The $1 million dollar project which is part of the $16.4 million capital works budget that will be dedicated to roads and bridges will cover streets in the Covington and Madisonville area.

The road improvement project will include work on Dummyline, Lalanne and Keys road. Work which includes milling, overlaying and repairing will take about 45 days and will span 5 miles of roadway along these three roads.

Detours will take motorists to alternate entrances of Dummyline, Lalanne and Keys road along Louisiana 21 and Louisiana 1077.

“Our primary goal in infrastructure maintenance is to improve the safety and convenience of travel for our residents. Projects like these are an excellent example of taxpayer dollars being invested well,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President.
