Work is scheduled to begin next week on another group of parish asphalt roads as part of reconstruction and repair of damages caused by floods during 2015 and 2016.
Assistant Bossier Parish Engineer Eric Hudson told parish police jury members Wednesday that contractors are scheduled to begin Task Order 2 on Monday, Sept. 20. This second phase will include a group of 11 parish asphalt roads.
Money for the reconstruction and repair of 32 parish roads is coming from more than $30 million in funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Those funds were awarded when a federal appeals court ruled in favor of the parish after years of having claims for relief denied by FEMA.
Roads scheduled for work in the second phase include Shadow Ridge Dr., Red Chute Lane, J R Dr., Beau Bridge Circle, Caplis Sligo Plantation, Luke’s Landing, Wildlife Lane, Longhorn Lane, Pecan Grove Lane, Willis Way and Reed’s Reef.
Jury members also awarded a bid for another FEMA road project Wednesday, giving approval to a $3.6 million submission from Benton & Brown of Minden for work on Poole Rd. in south Bossier Parish.
