GONZALES — Road crews will begin resurfacing work on Roddy Road in Ascension Parish on Wednesday.

Parish President Tommy Martinez announced the road work, which will extend from La. 931 to La. 621, will begin around 7 a.m.

Motorists in the parish have been encouraged to find alternate routes, although traffic will be allowed along Roddy Road at a reduced speed.

R.J. Daigle and Sons Contractors Inc. will handle the work, which will consist of applying lime and soil cement as a road base.

After a week for that mixture to cure, crews will then apply asphalt to the section being resurfaced.
