BATON ROUGE (AP) — State highway workers will start a $4.2 million safety project for the Baton Rouge region by enhancing the visibility of two intersections in Ascension Parish with new signs and other improvements.

         Officials tell The Advocate the intersections of Louisiana Highway 431 at Lake Martin Road and Louisiana 429 at Highway 22, which occur in curves and are in the eastern edge of the parish, will be the focus of the first batch of upgrades for the two-year project.
