DENHAM SPRINGS - Road crews in Livingston Parish say they've been busy working on completing a 2017-2018 road list to make way for the new year's projects.

A contracted crew was milling asphalt in South Point Subdivision Thursday morning, preparing the road for new soil, cement, and overlay. The bumps and divots along Springhill Drive won't be a problem for much longer.

"We've been on a slow start getting the monies appropriated, we've been having trouble with weather which everyone is well aware of," said Assistant DPW Director Huey Comeaux.

Thursday's weather was beautiful, which means the crew working in the subdivision was making a lot of progress. Comeaux says the road list for 2019 will be voted on by the Livingston Parish Council Thursday evening. It's then up to engineers to score and prioritize that list.

Parish President Layton Ricks says the parish will have between $6.5 and $8 million available for roadwork this year.
