NEW ROADS, LA (FOX44) - In New Roads, Mayor Robert Myer announces a new Boulevard that he says will bring more business to his city.
The new 3,000 square foot Boulevard will connect Major Parkway in New Roads to Hospital Road.
Mayor Myer says this new road was approved in spring of last year, it's a $3.5 million development.
Right now the plan is to beautify the Boulevard with trees and walking paths for people in the city to enjoy.

"New Roads is an excellent, excellent community, and what our main focus is, is helping people realize that new roads is a great place to live, not just a great place to be from," said New Roads Mayor Robert Myer.
