HOUMA, La. (AP) - The groundwork for the planned Terrebonne Parish government complex is complete, and officials are getting closer to starting construction.
Parish Capital Projects Administrator Jeanne Bray tells The Courier workers have finished the roads, pipes and water lines that will connect the site to the parish grid, which means ground will be broken soon for new buildings.
She says design plans for the new juvenile detention center, the animal shelter and a Public Works Department yard are in their final stages. Design plans for the Office of Emergency Preparedness are in the early stages.
The facilities will sit on the new the 30-acre parish complex, located off La. 24 north of the U.S. 90 overpass in Gray.
