Shreveport mayor releases 2018 Roadway Improvement Plan

Mayor Ollie Tyler has released her 2018 Roadway Improvement Plan which includes 82 new street projects.

This $7.1 million plan will produce street improvements in all districts of the city.

More than 200 streets have undergone improvements since Mayor Tyler took office.

“Although considerable street improvements have been made across the city, there is still much to do,” said Mayor Tyler. “We will continue to do repair and replacement of streets with a sense of urgency.”

The 2018 Plan includes continued work on Linwood Avenue and provides an additional $500,000 to the Concrete Streets Improvements project to address concrete street panel repairs that fall beyond the capacity of the Public Works Department.

According to city officials, more than $350 million was needed to repair streets in the city when Tyler took office. She has spent $58.6 million since 2015 on street repairs.
