BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Motorists on Bossier City's Arthur Ray Teague Parkway soon may notice a difference in the curves north of McDade Street.
The city council on Tuesday selected the Civil Design Group to re-design the curves to have a reduced radius.
The Times reports the existing curves are not designed to recommended state standards and make it hard for motorists to negotiate turns. The city will use over $97,000 from the sales tax capital improvement fund to redesign the curves.
City Attorney Jimmy Hall says the design process is estimated to take a few months. Once complete, the city would acquire estimates and fix the curves using money from a recent $500,000 settlement from the design firm Demopolus and Ferguson Associates.
