Francis Road Extension in Covington Area now Open

Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, announced today that the Francis Road Extension and 10-foot wide mixed-use path, is now open. This project, part of Parish Government’s ongoing initiatives to improve traffic flow and connectivity in St. Tammany, will provide the surrounding areas an additional navigational route as well as another recreational amenity.

“Retrofitting connectivity and increasing traffic flow efficiency to meet the needs of our growing community is something we methodically address every day, and this project is one of many that provides relief to an ever growing part of our Parish,” said Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President.  “Assessing the way traffic moves is an ongoing process, and we are committed to finding ways to enhance this movement.”

This $892,473 project connects Francis Road from where it previously stopped to the north of Highway 1085 (behind the YMCA), to Rousseau Road, which flanks the northwestern side of the Terra Bella subdivision in the Covington area.  It was completed in just over five months by Byron E. Talbot Contractor, Inc.
