LADOTD updates lane/shoulder closure status for I-20/I-220 interchange project


The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that daily and nightly intermittent lane and/or shoulder closures on I-20 eastbound and westbound at the I-220 interchange in Bossier Parish are still in place and will continue, as of Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

These lane/shoulder closures are associated with the I-20/I-220 Barksdale Air Force Base Interchange project that is currently under construction in Bossier Parish.

The intermittent lane/shoulder closures on I-20 are expected to last approximately 30 days as the project moves forward.

Other intermittent ramp closures at the interchange may be necessary as work progresses.

These lane/shoulder closures are in addition to the complete closure of the I-220 eastbound to I-20 westbound ramp that remains in place. This ramp closure is estimated to last until early August 2020.

The entire project, which is extending southward from the existing interchange creating a new road into BAFB, is anticipated to be complete in Fall 2021, weather permitting.

Alternate route: Detour signage will be in place when necessary.

Restrictions/Permits: N/A

Safety reminder:

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
