Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa today unveiled a website that will keep residents apprised of the progress in the Parish’s signature Move Ascension Initiative.

Move Ascension is a multi-million dollar transportation infrastructure improvement program developed to safely move traffic within Ascension Parish. The $35 million initiative is being funded by local parish tax dollars from the reserve fund as well as the proceeds from a newly authorized bond issue. As additional funds become available, the program budget may increase to pay for additional projects in Phase 2.

Move Ascension is the most exciting and needed transportation initiative in many years,” said Matassa. “With this website, everyone can follow its progress, and look for any updates and additions.”

President Matassa commended his staff and administration for working closely with the council to develop Move Ascension and for bringing the website live.

The website – – was developed in-house by the Technology Department, saving tens of thousands of dollars in development costs.
