Jimmie Davis Bridge – LA 511 – DESIGN-BUILD project

Location: Shreveport, LA (Bossier / Caddo Parish)     
Dates: March 2023 – Present

Huval And Associates is the main design engineer for the project to construct the new four-lane bridge across the Red River between Bossier Parish and Caddo Parish.

The project includes the reconstruction of two miles of LA 511 into a modern, four-lane median-divided highway.

The project encompasses the creation of full access interchange connections at two key junctions: Arthur Ray Teague Parkway and Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway. These interchanges will seamlessly integrate with the upgraded LA 511.

The initiative also includes the transformation of the existing Jimmie Davis Bridge into a Linear Park.
