Work on Terrebonne projects to begin in 2014

Posted: Updated:

HOUMA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - After years of planning, officials say construction is slated to begin on three Terrebonne Parish government facilities in 2014.

Capital Projects Administrator Jeanne Bray says design plans for the new juvenile detention center, the animal shelter and a public works yard are in their final stages.

And design plans for the Office of Emergency Preparedness are in the early stages.

Parish officials plan to use $7.3 million in federal money to build the new detention center. The existing center, next door to the co-ed adult jail, will then be converted to a women's jail.

The Public Works Department aims to create an 8-acre facility. The facility will cost about $2.5 million.

A new shelter will cost an estimated $2.4 million.
