BATON ROUGE - Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome updated her Twitter account on Friday morning with a post regarding upcoming road work projects in East Baton Rouge Parish. 

As the Mayor's MoveBR initiative pushes on in its attempt to improve the capital city's infrastructure, the question everyone's asking is which aspect of the plan will be addressed next.

The answer appears to be coming soon.
