Roddy Road construction now set Feb. 1

Staff reports

Roddy Road will close to all through traffic beginning Monday, Feb. 1 from Airline Highway north to Hwy. 429 for the construction of a right-turn lane.

The project was scheduled to begin Jan. 25, but contractors ran into unexpected delays because of a storm drain and natural gas line under Airline Highway near the intersection with Roddy.

Work is projected to be completed by the end of April. Motorists are advised to use Airline Highway as an alternate route.

The project is being done by R.J. Daigle and Son’s Contractors of Gonzales.
