Terrebonne leaders consider bridge expansion

Houma, La. - Drivers in Terrebonne Parish will find out next month if plans to ease some of their traffic problems will move forward.

Parish President Michel Claudet and Councilmember Greg Hood want to widen the one-way bridge connecting Westside Boulevard and Main street into a four-lane, two-way bridge.

Next month, council members will decide whether to ratify a plan to purchase extra land needed for the project.

Parish President Claudet says that decision will impact whether the parish can acquire the bridge from the state. He says money is already available for the bridge widening project.
