People who live in Bossier Parish will soon see improvements to several roads and bridges. Residents say this project is long overdue.
“It just all needs to be fixed,” Angel Ehrhard Resident. Many Bossier Parish residents say they’re fed up with the road conditions. “We’ve needed them fixed,” said Ehrhard. “The curve down there by the golf course is really dangerous.The potholes need to be fixed. You’re always hitting something.”
The Bossier Parish Police Jury says within three years several roads will be improved. “We have a three-year program and so every year we relay 17 to 20 miles of roadway,” said Butch Ford, Parish Engineer.
In addition to the more than $3 million annual road overlay program, the police jury is using a $20 million loan to straighten out winding roads and improve sewage systems and bridges.
“Bossier Parish is still the fastest growing Parish North of I-10, fifth fastest in the state, and the Police Jury has been very helpful and positive in trying to find sources. It’s hard to keep up with a fast-growing Parish,” said Ford.
The Bossier Parish Police Jury will begin repairing roads as early as April.
