DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) – A construction project in the vicinity of the Denham Springs-Walker border is set to start on Monday, January 10.

Forrest Delatte Rd. connects Juban Rd. and LA Highway 16 and the road is going to be under construction throughout most of 2022.

According to the Livingston Parish Government, “The work associated with this project includes clearing and grubbing, removal of a timber bridge, installation of drainage structures, milling of existing asphalt concrete, asphalt pavement patching, asphalt concrete overlay, and installation of a slab span bridge with precast concrete piles over Gray’s Creek.”

Construction on the new bridge over Gray’s Creek is slated to start on Monday.

This part of the project is expected to take around four months.

After the completion of construction on the new bridge, DOTD estimates that the rest of the project will take 115 days.

The goal is for this project to be completed sometime during the last month of this year.

Completion of the project will depend on good weather throughout the year.

The contractor for this project is Baker Pile Driving and the cost is set at $2,976,713.32.
