There is some fresh pavement in Bossier City and Bossier Parish awaiting your tires!  The southern extension of the Arthur Ray Teague Parkway is now open to motorists.

The 2.5-mile extension will make it possible to travel from Sligo Road south of Bossier City up to Traffic Street and I-20 in Bossier City with limited road interruptions.  Bossier Parish officials are looking to eventually extend the parkway south towards Taylortown.

This section of the parkway is completely new, extending it from its current terminus at the CenturyLink Center and the Jimmy Davis Bridge to its new terminus at Sligo Road.
