Citizens receive closer look at Abbeville Streetscaping project

During Thursday’s open house meeting, the Abbeville City Council answered questions from the public regarding the latest proposed LA-14 Downtown Abbeville Streetscaping project.
Plans for the project include replacing the existing sidewalks, which one resident agrees should be done.
“It has been a long time since improvements have been done, but what I would like to see added are many more handicap ramps installed sparingly around the vicinity of the proposed facelift areas,” said one resident who attended the meeting.
