HOUMA, La. (AP) - The opening of Houma’s $1.2 million Fireman’s Skate and Bike Park has been postponed the day before its scheduled opening. At issue are newly discovered cracks in the concrete.

Planning and zoning director Chris Pulaski told The Courier (https://bit.ly/1I302Pz ) Thursday that Terrebonne Parish government’s Public Works Department discovered small cracks throughout the park during the last day of inspections. The park was scheduled to open Friday, but the opening has since been postponed indefinitely until the cracks can be fixed.

Pulaski says the cracks, which could be enlarged by skate and bike wheels, pose a public safety concern.

The park next to the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center was named to honor the late Bayou Cane Fire Chief Jerry Gautreaux, who donated $10,000 to the project.
