Weather delays progress on Sulphur’s Parish Road project

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - There has been a delay in the completion of a major road project in Sulphur.

Parish Road, a major artery to the Sulphur Parks and Recreation Complex and Frasch Park, is set to be finished by late August.

The $3.2 million project has been delayed by bad weather and longer than expected underground utility work.

The busy thoroughfare is being repaved from Ruth to Eva Streets.

Turning lanes are being added at the intersections of Ruth and Picard.

About $2.2 million of the project is coming from federal funding.
