JEFF DAVIS PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the La. 97 improvement project at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Our Lady Immaculate School at 800 Roberts Avenue in Jennings.

Officials on Monday said La. 97 is "a vital link to one of Louisiana's heavily-traveled east-west interstate highway corridors, I-10."

The $4.4 million project involves a one-mile section of La. 97 between La. 102 to just north of Florence Street in Jeff Davis Parish.

The project will reportedly provide improved access to several transportation facilities in the immediate vicinity of the Jennings Airport, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and the Mermentau River Port.
