PRAIRIEVILLE, La. (AP) - Two public meetings have been scheduled in Ascension and Livingston parishes to discuss the possibility of building a parkway between the two parishes.
The first meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday at the Livingston Parish Health Unit in the town of Livingston. Ascension Parish officials will host a meeting on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Lakeside Primary School in Prairieville.
Each of the meetings will be styled as an open house with parish engineers and officials answering questions on the proposed project.
Officials of the two parishes envision a four-lane road and bridge crossing the Amite River and connecting U.S. Highway 190, Interstate 12 and Interstate 10.
