DENHAM SPRINGS - After a News 2 Special Report on the worst roads in Livingston Parish, area leaders are stepping in to try and fix the problem.

Roads in the South Point Subdivision are covered in potholes and shifting asphalt, something Councilwoman Joan Landry says she's aware of and trying to fix.

"Right now they do take and fill in the potholes, it doesn't last as long, but that is a temporary fix until we can get the whole road overlaid," said Landry.

Landry is waiting on enough money to overhaul the main arteries in the subdivision, but that's something that depends on tax revenues.

"We do have some sales tax money on top of that that's coming in and once we get a million, two million, three million dollars built up from that sales tax then we do do another road program," said Landry.

Landry says it could take between three and four years before the subdivision gets a permanent fix, but until then the parish will continue to fill in holes with temporary patches.
