STATE REPAIRS ROAD: A state Department of Transportation and Development crew was on American Legion Drive / Zaunbrecher Road late last week replacing a section of the roadway that had developed a crack after the state Road Transfer Program was completed. The state repaired and upgraded the road — a state highway — from Second Street to U.S. Highway 90 then transferred ownership, part to the city of Rayne and part to the parish of Acadia.
