The natural drainage channel has been improved by the City and the Parish in the past.
Some of the channel was widened, straightened and paved with concrete and some of the channel was widened, straightened as an earthen channel.
This project would pave the earthen channel.
This project can make maintenance on the ditch easier and may slightly improve the hydraulics.
A paved channel in the neighborhood will be less of an eyesore as the earthen channel.
