Post Date:11/06/2019 11:33 AM

The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury approved $1.5 million in grants for parish road and drainage improvement projects.

The Road and Drainage Trust Fund grants include $170,400 for the reconstruction of Barkley and Helen streets in Iowa; $145,000 for street rehabilitation in Sulphur; $119,000 for North Horridge Street improvements in Vinton; $118,000 for Lee Street improvements in Westlake; $94,000 for Chavis Square Park drainage improvements in DeQuincy and $500,000 for Ward Four Gravity Drainage District 5 for drainage lateral improvements.

The Police Jury typically awards $1 million each year from this program; however, this year, additional funds became available from previous years' project withdrawals and other projects costing less than anticipated.

All projects are expected begin in 2020.
