One day bicyclists will cross the Jimmie Davis Bridge in their own bike lanes as they ride from Teague to Fant Parkways

Louisiana's Dept Of Transportation and Development (DOTD) is developing a crossing of the Red River at the Jimmie Davis Bridge, LA highway 511, that will provide two 12‐foot travel lanes in each direction - for trucks and autos - with 4‐foot inside shoulders and 8‐foot outside shoulders - for bicycles and pedestrians.

It will be a shared use trail that connects the existing trails in Arthur Ray Teague Parkway and Clyde Fant Parkway.

Pardon me, but wow.

All interested citizens are invited, says Leah Hogan, and encouraged to attend a public meeting public meeting to discuss the Environmental Assessment(EA) for the proposed upgrade to improve the crossing of the Red River.
