ZACHARY- Improvements are underway on MacHost Road after years of serious and sometimes deadly accidents.

MacHost connects Main Street in Zachary with Pride-Port Hudson Road.  The plans involve widening the road.  Trees will be removed.  New ditches will be installed. 

Firefighter Ben Zachary lost a friend in a deadly wreck a few years ago.  He says the improvements are overdue.

The MacHost Road improvements are a joint project between the East Baton Rouge Parish Metro Council and the City of Zachary.  It will cost about $2.4 million dollars.  Trees scheduled to be cut down have already been marked.
