The ride to and from work is getting smoother and smoother in St. Landry Parish as the first two phases of an ambitious parishwide “Smooth Ride Home” road rebuilding are completed and now officials have annouced that they are nearing the start of phrase three.

“Smooth Ride is a visionary plan that Parish President Bill Fontenot says should be a model for the state and the nation.

“It’s better than the U.S. or the state in my opinion,” he said.

“We are upgrading our roads to a standard that will last for many, many years to come. This is work that has been needed for decades.”

The list for phrase three consist of 70 miles of parish roads which will now bring the total miles paved under the parish’ s Smooth Ride Home Program to 280 miles at a cost of approximately$ 65 million dollars since August of 2014.

The roadwork was made possible by a ( two) penny sales tax in rural St. Landry Parish that was approved by the voters in October 2013.
