“We are so proud to have this opportunity to work on another Holmes Auto Group project and excited about the continued economic growth in Bossier City”, said Kristen Brown, president of Brown Builders.
The Holmes Honda Bossier City Dealership is the first tenant of the area north of I-220 between Swan Lake Rd and Airline Drive to be recently rezoned to create additional commercial and retail space in Bossier City.
Innovation Drive is proposed to extend from Swan Lake Road to Airline Drive to reduce congestion on Airline Drive and serve as a frontage road to I-220, creating an east–west route.
