About the Byway

The Boom or Bust Byway follows Highway 2 and is defined by the Louisiana/Texas border and Hwy. 3049 on the west and Lake Claiborne on the east. The byway is comprised of four parishes: Caddo, Bossier, Webster, and Claiborne. As part of Louisiana’s French legacy counties are called “parishes” in reference to the territories that were historically under the pastoral care and clerical jurisdiction of one parish priest. Even today the Napoleonic Code (rather than Common Law) holds sway in the state’s courtrooms.
