Dogwood project nearly complete


Repairs to a 40-foot washout along a drainage pipe behind homes in Dogwood subdivision are almost complete. Parish police jury highway department workers have replaced and covered a new section of drainage pipe, and a thick layer of rock is being applied to help prevent erosion. Larger rock will be placed just beneath the drainage pipe's discharge area to help channel water from Dogwood out of the area.

Heavy equipment was needed to clear a path to the damaged drainage pipe. Roughly 40-feet of pipe was replaced.
