A State Bond Commission online auction of general obligation bonds earlier this month netted some $12.6 million that will be earmarked for projects in Lafayette Parish, according to Treasurer John Kennedy’s office. Total revenues generated by the auction were just over $496 million for more than 600 infrastructure projects throughout the state.

In Lafayette, the proceeds from the auction will be divvied up accordingly:

•    $499,500 for the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) to complete Verot School Road

•    $295,000 for the LSU Health Sciences Center’s Health Care Services Division to expand their emergency room and refurbish elevators

•    $529,800 for Cajundome improvements

•    $11.3 for Youngsville to complete its Parkway Road and Beltway Road projects.
