On Monday, November 23, 2020, Bossier City officials gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony and first official drive down the new extension of Innovation Drive.
The Innovation Drive extension project was developed to improve traffic flow and create more economic development opportunity in Bossier City. The new section of roadway connects Swan Lake Road north of I-220 to Airline Drive at both Green Acres Boulevard and Miciotto Lane (behind Bed Bath & Beyond). Construction on the 2 mile stretch of roadway began in May of 2019 and is now substantially complete. The $10.5 million project includes new water, sewer, and storm drainage infrastructure to meet the needs of future businesses.
