Editor’s note: This is the third in a four-part series looking at the proposed Moving Ruston Forward infrastructure improvement plan that goes before city voters on April 9. Today’s installment looks at streets, drainage, bike paths and sidewalks.
About 10 years ago, Ruston officials celebrated a project they said would ease traffic flow south of town and help open the area for economic development.
The engineering was done. The project was ready to begin, “shovel ready,” as the term goes. It still is.
The Young Entrepreneurs Academy will begin in Lincoln Parish in November.
The program is designed for students in grades six-12 who have demonstrated creativity, academic effort, determination, enthusiasm, innovative ideas, the ability to communicate and a commitment to their family and community.
