Slidell Area Road and Drainage Project Now Underway

SLIDELL – Pat Brister, St. Tammany Parish President, announced that the road and drainage project in the Lake Village subdivision is now underway. 

Crews have started the first phase of this combined project which involves the installation of a subsurface drainage culvert from Lake Erie Drive and North Pearl Drive, to the existing drainage canal in the Lake Village subdivision, to tie in the Lake Village area to the new culvert, creating another dedicated drainage avenue for the subdivision. The dedicated drainage for North Pearl Avenue will remain in place.

Following completion of the drainage work, a new ADA compliant sidewalk will be installed along North Pearl Drive between Lake Erie and the drainage canal. In addition, North Pearl Street will be milled and overlaid from Lake Erie to Gause Boulevard. These sidewalk and roadway enhancements are designed to make pedestrian and vehicular travel smoother. The entire project will benefit the Lake Village, Pearl Acres and Hidden Oaks subdivisions.
