Pothole patrol underway after Livingston Parish flooding
KILLIAN - While flooding in Livingston Parish damaged more than 300 homes, the standing water also took a toll on roadways.
That's why Livingston Parish Department of Public Works crews are on pothole patrol across the parish. Thursday crews worked in Watson, Albany, Springfield and Killian.
DPW sent out three dump trucks and a pothole patching truck to tackle the problem. DPW says the flood waters washed away parts of some roads. People dealing with flood cleanup, like John Easley in Killian, hope potholes will become one less thing to worry about.
"Oh absolutely. It makes a huge difference. I just hope we'll get a break in the rain so that their repairs will last for a while," said Easley.
DPW expects to continue patching potholes through next week. DPW will also meet with FEMA to try to get reimbursed for the money spent on storm related repairs.
