2 Bossier roads closed for bridge, drainage system repairs

BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A pair of south Bossier Parish roads will be closed until Tuesday, January 9 while repairs are made to a bridge and drainage system.

Sligo Road will be closed while police jury highway department workers complete repairs to a bridge about a mile east of Caplis Sligo Road near Olde Oakes golf course and Mayflower Road.

Parish officials say the bridge should be finished by the end of the week, weather permitting.

Fairview Point Road is also closed while contractors make repairs to culverts damaged during the massive flooding of 2016.

Work is being done on the drainage system located west of Parish Camp Road.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds are being used to make the repairs.
