City Begins Groundwork for Jefferson Ave Roundabout

From the City of Covington Mayor Mark Johnson

Jefferson Ave. Utility Relocation

The Louisiana Department of Transportation (LADOTD) is working on a project to construct a roundabout at the intersection of US 190B at Jefferson Ave. The Purpose of this project is to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion. The project is scheduled to be bid in March 2021; however, as part of this project, the city of Covington is required to relocate its water, and sewer utility lines.

For this purpose a contract was awarded to Subterranean Construction, LLC, with Notice to Proceed given on June 1, 2020. The work is expected to be substantially completed within 45 days and completed fully within 60 days of the NTP date. Residents should expect possible short term traffic detours.

Thank you for your cooperation and your patience.
Mayor Mark
