Work on Tauzin Island Road begins



Natchitoches Parish President Rick Nowlin announces that work will begin Monday, July 24 for the permanent replacement of a cross-drain structure on Tauzin Island Road that was damaged by the March 2016 disaster event.

This structure is located approximately 0.8 mile northwest of the junction of Tauzin Island Road and State Route LA-6 [Grand Ecore Road].

The work will be performed by Regional Construction, L.L.C., of Natchitoches, at the contract price of $80,000.

Through traffic will be maintained through this work site at all times, but some short delays may occur at various times. While traveling through this work site, motorists are encouraged to exercise caution and to heed all warning signs and other traffic control devices.

The project is expected to be completed within two weeks.
