New Look – Thibodaux Welcome Signs
The City of Thibodaux has acquired a new look at two of its most heavily used entrances. The two new stucco-styled signs are located on La 24 and St. Patrick Hwy (the City’s entrance from Chackbay) and on LA 308 on the South entrance to the City.
The City has been working on this project for some time trying to insure that the signs would reflect both the attractiveness and welcoming warmth of Thibodaux. Beautiful landscaping was constructed around the La 24 and St. Patrick Hwy sign. Future plans for landscaping the South entrance sign are in effect.
Mayor Charles Caillouet stated, “It is only fitting that we have these beautiful signs to welcome people to our grand City. It fits nicely into our economic development progress toward attracting people and businesses to the City.”
Work continues at placing these signs at all entrances to Thibodaux.
