The railroad bridge on the Tangipahoa River at U.S. hwy 190
On this past Monday the Tangipahoa Parish Council unanimously approved an ordinance authorizing Parish President Robby Miller to enter into an agreement with the LA DOT to remove the bridge from the river. As many of the residents of Robert are aware the old railroad bridge collapsed into the Tangipahoa river some time ago.
The removal of this bridge from the river is an important issue for the Robert area. The bridge is collecting debris and restricting water flow on the river with Hurricane season here it is essential to have the obstruction removed for the safety of the public and prevent flooding in the area.
Thank you to the council for approving this measure in an expeditious manner and to Parish President Robby Miller and his staff for their great work.
