DALLAS - Work would begin soon on the first levees along the Mississippi River in the river-bisected St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana if voters approve a package calling for $29.5 million of 20-year general obligation bonds for various projects.

Voters in the parish some 30 miles upriver from New Orleans will go to the polls on April 4 to decide on five separate bond proposals. In May 2008, parish residents rejected a one-part, $25 million bond program by 73 votes.
