Three-Phase Road & Drainage Project Coming To Address Growth In North Bossier

road-closed-630x325Beginning Monday, the 8th, Wemple Road in north Bossier City will start getting some major upgrades.

Bossier Parish Public Safety Director Sammy Halphen says it’s due to the large amount of growth in that area of town. “This area has seen extensive growth, and businesses coming in,” Halphen says. “And while all that happens, it’s very important to keep up with the needs, whether it be drainage, electric, the roadway.”

Halphen says this is a three-phase project, with the first phase to be complete by August 26th. During that time, the outside southbound lane of Airline Drive, and the intersection of Wemple Road at Airline, will be closed. All access points to the Exxon station will be open. But residents will have to access Bossier Federal Credit Union and The Reserve at Bossier City Apartments from the west on Wemple Road.

Halphen tells us there are several things that will be going on during the construction. “Moving of some drainage, adding of some drainage,” he says. “And so all that has to do with tearing up the road and making the drainage better in the area.”

Phase Two of the project will run from August 27th through October 15th, and Phase Three should wrap up by December 4th. We’ll bring you more details on what will change during those phases as they get a little closer.
