Denham Springs gets grant money to replace old street signs
DENHAM SPRINGS - Hundreds of old, worn out street signs will be replaced soon in Denham Springs after the city received a $22,000 state grant.
The reflective coating on street signs typically lasts between 8-10 years, but most signs in Denham Springs are 15-20 years old, according to Mayor Gerard Landry. Landry says the new signs will help first responders and drivers get around town better at night. Residents like Tim Smith agree.
"We have a lot of inconspicuous little streets, and I think it probably is a problem sometimes finding a house or finding a street," he said. "That's great. If small towns can get grants that's good you know. All the better."
Workers are now making a list of street signs that need to be replaced. The city will then order new signs from a local company in Livingston Parish.
