A host of government officials from St. John the Baptist Parish and Tangipahoa, including St. John Parish President Natalie Robottom, were on hand to mark the occasion, along with several project organizers.

“We’ve been working to build up the Frenier area for a while now to allow for all types of activities,” Robottom said. “We want to try to make it a safer place for people to walk, to run, to ride bikes. The signage is a big first step.”

Road Construction

This is a message from St. John Parish. Beginning tomorrow, Friday, July  21, the contractor for the Reserve Drainage Project will be asphalting patches in the intersections of Perrilloux & 27th Street and Perrilloux and 26th Street. Weather permitting, both intersections should be asphalted by next Wednesday, July 26.

The contractor plans to work with residents as much as possible, but there may be times when an entire intersection may be closed to perform work. Proper traffic control signage will be used as necessary and residents should be on the lookout for work crews and equipment.

NOTE: All streets will reopen at the end of a work day. Thank you for your patience during this progress.
