|Jury seeks help on Wildsville roads|
The Concordia Parish Police Jury is seeking the assistance of legislators to provide a turnaround for two roads in Wildsville after the Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development indicated it couldn't assist at this time.
DOTD informed the Jury that it can't reconnect Beard and Bowie roads to Hwy. 84 due to safety reasons and that a loop between the two roads could not be constructed without the acquisition of a right-of-way.
District 5A Juror Jimmy Jernigan says he's hopeful legislators can help.
"I think there has got to be a way for us to help the people on these roads get a turnaround so that they can have mail, ambulance and fire service," he said.
Jernigan said that residents along the two roads had access to Hwy. 84 prior to four-lane construction. He said both Bowie and Beard are now barricaded at the former connections with that highway and that the only access out today is through the Wildsville Road, which connects with Hwy. 84 and Hwy. 565.
He said there are three residences on Beard Road and five on Bowie.
Jernigan cites letters from the U.S. Post Office, Concordia Fire District No. 2 and Miss-Lou Ambulance Service as causes for concern.
