The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) in conjunction with the Northwest Louisiana Council of Governments and the Federal Highway Administration has scheduled a public meeting to discuss preliminary design concepts for the improvements and implementation of a new north/south corridor in Bossier Parish, and to obtain public comments in the early planning stages of this project. The plans provide for an additional north/south corridor that will link the rapidly growing residential areas of Bossier Parish to the business centers of Shreveport and Bossier City.


Comments and suggestions will be accepted from all interested parties to help insure that the study team addresses the full range of environmental issues during the Environmental Assessment (EA) study process. Representatives of the study team will be available to receive comments and answer questions related to the project. All interested citizens are invited and encouraged to attend.

They may be reached by calling (225) 242-4502 or writing to LADOTD Environmental Section, 1201 Capital Access Road, Room 504D, Baton Rouge, LA 70804.


All public comments related to the proposed corridor should be postmarked no later than August 3, 2007, and sent to:
