Maintenance projects on Bossier Parish roads is more than adding either a new surface of asphalt or replacing damaged areas on the roadways.
Police Jury highway department crews are also responsible for clearing and leveling ditches to ensure proper drainage during heavy rains, and for keeping roadside growth under control.
Highway department crews are currently working on drainage ditches on Firetower Rd. just outside Rocky Mount, and using the parish boom cutter to remove growth from the right-of-way on Wells Rd., which intersects with Bellevue Rd.
