North Bossier Residents Seeing Big Improvements on Northgate Road

Angela Thomas/KEEL

The State Department of Transportation and Development has a lot of projects in the works. One of them is continuing construction on Northgate Road in Bossier City.

Department spokeswoman Susan Stafford tells KEEL News that yesterday’s rain caused a slight delay, but it won’t take long to finish the resurfacing project. And residents in the area will experience noticeable improvements.

“It is a big difference,” Stafford says. “[Workers] were very good at getting that done quickly, so the road’s going to be a wonderful, wonderful upgrade.”

The tie-ups, particularly for those who utilize the road to get to work at Barksdale Air Force Base, have caused some major headaches. But Stafford says to get the work done quickly, some inconveniences should be expected. “It’s always important to slow down, be aware and watch out for people. But that’s going to be a great upgrade to that area,” she says.

This work is part of DOTD’s Road Transfer Program. Once the repaving is finished, the road will be handed over to the city. “So it will no longer be a state route,” Stafford says. “That was one of our first roads that we’ve done with the Road Transfer Program with the City of Bossier, so we’re real excited about that.”
