The Quality of Life -Southwest Louisiana group will be having a one-day “Better Block” demonstration project Saturday, February 3 from 10 AM til 5 PM.
The project will demonstrate what a pedestrian friendly roadway could look like if implemented. They will be using a “share the road” format for half of the project, and a dedicated bike lane format for the other half. The demonstration will include parking, crosswalks, shopping, and pop-up vendors as well. It will be open to the public for residents to give their feedback.
The Sulphur Better Block demonstration will stretch four blocks on South Huntington Street, from Cypress to the railroad tracks North of Hwy 90.
