All work will be posted on the day of construction. Miller said streets that are scheduled for paving and soil cement operations will be closed at the construction site.
In addition to these projects, Miller said the entrance to Pecan Grove Subdivision will be closed for approximately six hours on Thursday, Aug. 6, as Tangipahoa Parish Road and Bridge crews complete a cross drain replacement project. The construction zone will be at the intersection of Pecan Grove Drive and LA 445. The closure is scheduled from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., and during that time frame, no traffic will be allowed to pass through the construction zone.
This project was previously scheduled for July 29 but was postponed due to heavy rains last week.
