Extra money could pay for EBR improvements
Dozens of construction projects, worth nearly $20 million, could be in store for Baton Rouge. The money is left over from construction that has already been completed.
If the Metro Council gives the okay, nearly 30 projects for the Department of Public Works would pick-up those funds that have been leftover.
Mayor Kip Holden's office says the projects are aimed at alleviating traffic, beautifying Baton Rouge and making the city safer.
Citizens will get a chance to weigh-in on the proposed projects and leftover money in a public hearing at the Metro Council in two weeks.
