LOUISIANA — The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has announced that both Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge Parishes will receive newly repaved roads.
This is all a part of the Quality Surface Program; it's the start of construction of a $6.7 million project to resurface 8.3 miles of La. 417 and 2.6 miles of La. 982 in Pointe Coupee and West Baton Rouge parishes.
The roadway segments being resurfaced during the project include:
• La. 417 from La. 10 to 0.5 miles south of the Morganza levee in Pointe Coupee Parish

Work on the project is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 5, and is scheduled to finish in late spring 2014.
The Quality Surface Program is a $425 million initiative to resurface and repair approximately 1,100 miles of Louisiana’s rural road segments statewide.
