Grain harvest

BIG TRUCKS loaded with grain have been traveling roads throughout the parish this week. LSU AgCenter Agent Kylie Miller says the corn harvest is nearing completion and the soybean harvest is getting underway. This truck, traveling on La. Hwy. 15, is hauling a load of grain from the Monterey area to the grain elevator in Vidalia. In the background, construction work continues to realign the highway closer to the Mississippi River mainline levee for safety purposes. This location is at the point where La. Hwy. 565 (Monterey highway) intersects Hwy. 15 at Deer Park. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the project construction cost is $1,073,526. (Concordia Sentinel photo)
