Driving across a rough railroad crossing is a much less common occurrence now than it was years ago. In an effort to continue this trend the railroad crossing on Fruge Street (Highway 90) will be replace on March 20, 2015. This will result in the road's closure for two days.
I'm sure you remember the traffic delays caused by the construction at the corner of Prien Lake Road and Ryan Street a while back. The intersection is much more user-friendly now but there were growing pains. Now the growing pains move downtown.
Morgan City's been working on getting their $3 million visitor's center since way before Hurricane Katrina. And this week, about one month before it was finally scheduled for completion, it SANK five feet into the ground. What the heck happened?
For months, Lake Street in Lake Charles has been closed as they repaved the road and fixed bridge that goes over Contraband bayou.
I went by the intersection today around 3 p.m. and saw the workers removing the detour signs.
