Infrastructure Investment of Nearly $800,000 to Begin Soon in Black River Estates in the Madisonville Area
St. Tammany Parish President Mike Cooper announced that a bridge replacement project on Black River Drive in Black River Estates subdivision in the Madisonville area will begin November 2, 2020. This $759,582 investment is expected to be complete in May of 2021.
“When we make investments like this in our infrastructure — particularly bridge replacements — benefits are twofold in that end of life materials are replaced, and the structure is modernized with the most advanced, durable material available,” Cooper said. “This enhances not only the safety of the bridge, it also extends its lifespan, and as a result improves travel for citizens.”
Residents who live North of the Bridge on Black River Drive and visitors to Black River Estates who wish to get to this area, should plan to use an alternate route. Access through Black River Drive from Highway 22, beginning November 2, 2020 will be open only to residents who live South of the Bridge. Brown Industrial is the contractor for this project.
