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.”

East 11th St. - Water Outage/Boil Water Advisory

Monday May 2, 2016

The Utilities Department will be making emergency repairs  to a waterline,  and as a result, water customers on East 11th St. will lose water pressure for 2 to 4 hours while repairs made.

Because of this issue, the water produced by our water supply system is of questionable microbiological quality. As a precaution, the Water System in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has issued a Boil Water Advisory for all water customers who lost water pressure. This BOIL ADVISORY is to remain in effect until lifted by the St. John the Baptist Parish Utilities Department. The Utilities Department will lift the Boil Water Advisory upon notification from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals-Office of Public Health that the water samples collected from the area are safe.
 
It is recommended that all consumers disinfect their water before consuming it or using it for food preparation by boiling water for one (1) full minute in a clean container. The one minute starts after the water has been brought to a rolling boil. Again, please be sure to disinfect your own water prior to consumption until you have been advised otherwise.
 
You will be notified when the Boil Water Advisory is lifted.

Road Construction

Beginning Monday, April 11, 2016 and continuing through June 2016, the I-10 Westbound Off-Ramp to LA 3188 (Belle Terre, Exit 206) and westbound On-Ramp from LA 3188 to I-10 Westbound will be closed nightly from 8 PM until 6 AM for overpass repairs.

Also, there will be alternating lane closures I-10 Westbound approaching LA 3188, nightly from 8 PM to 6 AM.

Detour routes are as follows:

I-10 West bound to LA 3188 should exit @ US 51 (Exit 209), travel south on US 51 to US 61, then north on US 61 to LA 3188.
LA 3188 to I-10 Westbound should travel south on US 61 to US 51, then north on US 51 to I-10.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the work site and be on the lookout for work crews and equipment.
