Johnston Street Intersection Closes for 1 Month + Youngsville Using Easter Break to Get Needed Drainage Work Done
With students being out of school this week for their Easter Break, it has given local governments a great opportunity to get some needed work done on the roads - whether it's actual roadwork or drainage work that requires crews to have to use roadways to get it done. Sure, traffic can still be heavy during this time but it's significantly less with all of the school buses off the roadways during this week.
The ever-growing city of Youngsville has decided to use this week to get some much needed drainage work done. On E. Milton Avenue - between Verot School Road and S St. Blaise - Public Works is completing roadside drainage maintenance while school is out.
