ST. AMANT, La (NBC33) — A dangerous road in St. Amant will get a safety upgrade in the coming weeks. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development will add extra signs along Stringer Bridge Road to warn drivers of curves.
Thousands of people sent a letter to the state agency asking for more safety measures along this stretch of road. That's where two little girls were killed after their mother's car swerved off the road and into Black Bayou.
DOTD says they're also trying to figure out if other safety features, like center-line rumble strips, need to be added. They'll make a decision on that by the end of April.
