Shreveport Releases Road Improvement Plan For 2017

Road construction is really just a way of life in Shreveport. It seems that Mayor Ollie Tyler has turned it up a notch by putting more construction crews on the roads to repair or improve roadways in every city district.

Mayor Ollie Tyler has released her 2017 Roadway Improvement Plan. The $6.7 million plan will include 50 new street projects and the creation of new bike paths.

“Since taking office, one of my top priorities was to address the repair/replacement of streets in all areas of the city and to do it with a sense of urgency. Having a Strategic Plan makes that possible,” said Mayor Tyler. “Although considerable street improvements have been made across the city, there is still much to do.”

In just two years, the Tyler administration has initiated 148 street projects, totaling $46 million. Of that number, 122 have been completed. When Mayor Tyler entered office, more than $350 million was needed to repair streets in the city and these funds were not available.

The City will have a community meeting to discuss the proposed bike paths at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, February 6, at Centenary College’s Whited Room off Wilkinson Street.
