DOTD announces project to improve LA 529 in north Bossier Parish

SHREVEPORT, La. – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces a project to improve nearly seven miles of LA 529 in northeast Bossier Parish.

The $2.8 million asphalt overlay project stretches on LA 529 from its intersection with LA 2 south to LA 160, and also includes pavement patching, grading, drainage structures, roadway striping, and related work. It’s located just west of the Webster Parish line.

The contract was awarded to Benton & Brown, LLC., and work is anticipated to begin in mid-October 2020.

The entire project is expected to be complete in Spring 2021, as long as temperatures are warm enough to apply asphalt. When conditions are too cold to continue with asphalt operations, the project will be halted.

Lane closures will be necessary as pavement work begins, and notifications will be issued via the MyDOTD subscription system.

Safety reminder:

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
