On Friday May 12 at 1PM. The City of Lake Charles and the Veterans Memorial Commission will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park, located on Lake Shore Drive, for phase II improvements. The park improvements include construction of concrete, foundations, brick pavers, electrical upgrades, pole lighting, landscaping, lighted bollards and other site furnishings including an electric kiosk that will assist residents in finding their engraved brick in the park. The most visual change will be ten steel panel silhouettes with different figures representing the five different branches of the service. The project was rewarded to Pat Williams Construction at the April 19th Lake Charles City Council meeting and will take approximately 180 days to complete. This project is estimated to cost $260,000.
