Due to a large amount of vehicle traffic expected at the Carrie Underwood concert tomorrow night, April 22, 2016 at the CenturyLink Center, the Bossier City Police Department is advising motorists to plan accordingly to help minimize traffic congestion in the area.

Concertgoers should make plans to arrive early. The doors will open for the show at 6 p.m. with the concert scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.  Motorists not attending the show should consider utilizing Barksdale Boulevard and avoid traveling on the Arthur Ray Teague Parkway in the vicinity of the CenturyLink Center from late tomorrow afternoon through the early evening hours as concertgoers arrive. They should also avoid traveling in the area when the concert crowd lets out at approximately 11 p.m. due to the large number of vehicles that will be exiting the arena.

Bossier City police officers will also be on hand in and around the CenturyLink Center to assist with traffic control and security.
