Ascension / Livingston Parish Parkway


Recommended Posts

I know this has been discussed on the parish specific threads however this could turn into a major project for the area so I figured it needed it's own thread since it is not specific to just one parish.




A pair of public meetings have been scheduled next week in Ascension and Livingston parishes to discuss the feasibility of building a parkway between the two parishes.

The first meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the Livingston Parish Health Unit, 29261 S. Frost Road, Livingston. Ascension Parish officials will host a meeting the next day, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Lakeside Primary School, 16500 La. 431, Prairieville.

Thanks for the link....see there are 5 images...but only 4 different options...see Alternative 2 & Alternative 3(twice)...wonder what Alternative 1 would be??


Good to see the Parkway will parallel Hwy447(Walker South)..so construction won't affect traffic...+ the Parkway is  much straighter than the way too curvy Hwy 447

Parishes partner up for toll road


The Ascension Parish Transportation Committee approved plans to build a toll road connecting the Ascension and Livingston parishes.


The new road would start at the intersection of Highways 42 and 933 in Ascension, extending to Walker South Road in Livingston Parish. The tollway would cross the Amite River and link with Highway 16.


Both parishes have partnered with a private corporation in planning the toll road. If the plans are approved, the American Transportation Partners would operate the tollway and collect the revenue.


Livingston Parish has already approved $10,000 in start-up fees for the project. The next step is getting approval from the Ascension Parish Council.
