The lights will brighten the road stretching from the intersection of the West Gate of Barksdale Air Force Base and LA 3032 to the intersection of LA-511 and Highway 71.
The city kick-started the Hwy. 71 Lighting Project January 8 of last year by entering into a cooperative endeavor agreement with the State of Louisiana and Division of Administration Facility Planning and Control.
The State of Louisiana Legislature appropriated $780,00 for the project from the capital outlay project funds.
