BOURG, La. (AP) - A narrow, heavily traveled road in Bourg is set to be widened next year.
The Country Drive widening project is now in the land-acquisition phase, according to The Courier. The project will widen each of the existing lanes from 9 to 11 feet and add a 4-foot wide paved shoulder on each side.
The project price tag is expected to total about $4 million. Public Works officials aren't sure exactly when construction will begin. It was approved by the state Transportation Department in 2010.
