MONROE, La. (KNOE) Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo's office is requesting the city council to approve the next step of the Kansas Lane Extension Project. It would extend the road more than two and a half miles, connecting it to Hwy 165 at Forsythe Extension.
Officials say that the project is expected to alleviate traffic during "peak city hours."
Mayo's office hopes to get the project out for bids by as early as next month.
