Several streets in central Abbeville will soon get $700,000 worth of overlay work.
Most of that will be funded by a $600,000 Louisiana Community Development Block Grant, the third the city has received in six years. The city is funding the remaining $100,000, says Mayor Mark Piazza.
The project area takes up three city districts -- A, B and D. The improvements are part of a long-range planning project for the city and the streets were chosen by road engineers, says Piazza.
Bids for the projects are being advertised now, and are set to be awarded sometime next month. The work will begin shortly after.
