Contractors making progress on Livingston Parish roads
ALBANY - After a long wait road paving is underway for Livingston Parish's overlay project, which tackles 40 of the parish's worst roads.
Crews continued laying asphalt on several streets in Albany Friday. They've made strides in the past few weeks.
"It's something they need to keep doing fixing these roads, because Livingston Parish has the worst roads I've ever seen in my life," said Albany resident Joe Monistere.
The workers are a little more than a month into a seven-month project. Parish leaders say contractors are making great progress so far, but there's still a lot left to do.
"There's other people that have bad roads in Livingston Parish that we drive down them, and they need their roads fixed too," said Monistere.
Crews have also done drainage work in the Watson area and paved one road there. It is up to the contractor to decide which roads get paved first, but all 40 must be finished within the seven months.
