Scenic corridor plan advances in Jeff Davis

LAKE ARTHUR, La. (AP) - Plans for a proposed scenic Flyway Byway through Jefferson Davis Parish are moving closer to reality.

Consultants held a final management review session in Lake Arthur to present a draft of the Corridor Management Plan for the new state-designated byway.

The American Press reports the Flyway Byway would be a 55-mile scenic driving route with bicycle trails, waterways - called blueways in the plan - and meandering walking paths.

The route forms a loop linking Jennings, Lake Arthur, Welsh and Roanoke. Two spurs would connect the byway with Interstate 10 to the north and two spurs would extend the byway to the Cameron Parish line.

The byway is one of 17 being developed in Louisiana to attract tourists, according to Doug Bourgeois, director of the Louisiana Byways Collection.
