Road repair project wrapping up in Terrebonne

HOUMA, La. — A Terrebonne Parish project to repair damaged roads is wrapping up.

The $1.2 million in work involves resurfacing and patching asphalt roads that made it onto the road-priority checklist, which the Parish Council approves each year.

Perry Blanchard, parish operation manager, tells The Courier the money comes partially from the state, which allocates aid based on the total miles of roads in each parish. He says that amount is similar to the money spent in previous years.

Terrebonne Parish typically matches the amount the state gives.

The Metairie-based contractor Barriere Construction is doing the roadwork.

Blanchard said the parish tries to get the repairs done as quickly as possible. He says most of the roads that made the list this year were worked on.
