    Let's paint the Jimmie Davis bridge in Shreveport "blue"

    The State of Louisiana DOTD is going to be referbing the Jimmie Davis bridge in Shreveport / Bossier, and is giving the public the opportunity to choose the color of the paint. One of the color choices is blue (another one of the choices is purple, and we sure do not want that).

    Go here https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/pickthepaint and VOTE FOR BLUE

    Facepalm. How about the cheapest paint that fades the slowest? This is gay. Shreveport will soon have a lavender bridge.

    Waste of money, they should paint it Beige, Gray, or White. Painting it Red/Blue/Purple will fade pretty fast under the hot southern sun!

    I voted for blue, but I think it's kind of silly that they are taking a vote.

    I think it's silly people outside the state who don't pay the state's taxes get to vote (or voice their opinion) :icon_wink:

    I swear if they paint that bridge purple, I'll never be seen driving across it again. Good thing I can vote for blue as many times as I want :icon_wink:

    I think painting the bridge purple will be fine. Think of all the birds sh-----ing on it. Then all the tigger fans will have to pay somebody to keep it clean. After a few years with fading and all the wear and tear and bird poop no one will know or care what color it is. How often do you think they repaint those things anyway?

    They never even finished the neon lights on the Texas Street Bridge.

    I voted blue though.

    That's actually a great point, and you are right.. But, I haven't missed paying state taxes for the last 12 years.

    No they did finish them, that was the retarded ass design. Then as the bulbs burned out they didn't have the money to replace them. Surprise surprise bulbs burn out and cost money to replace. Absolutely one of the stupidest debacles in a town full of them. I've had people come here from other states tell me that want to see the neon bridge because they are still advertising it in travel brochures.

    There was also a laser light on top of the bridge that pointed to the steeple of the Methodist Church at the end of Texas St. After spending all the money to buy the light and have it installed, the City of Shreveport put in new street lights on Texas Street. Because nobody bothered to do any homework before the street light project, the new lights were a different height and drowned out the high-priced laser. It was never visible, and now does not work.
