NEW ROADS - More than 1,000 miles of rural roads across the state are getting a facelift.

The project comes after a new law was passed to help generate $425 million over three years to repair them.

The repairs will cost around $150 million the first year, with several parishes affected.

News 2's Olivia LaBorde is in Pointe Coupee Parish as residents prepare for the long-awaited improvements.
