The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that beginning on Wednesday, March 3, 2021, the I-220 eastbound to I-20 eastbound ramp at the I-220 interchange in Bossier Parish, will be closed between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
These ramp closures are necessary for the placement of bridge girders over I-20 related to the ongoing construction of the new I-220/I-20/Barksdale Air Force Base Interchange.
All work related to the ramp closures will be performed between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. each night to help minimize the impact to the traveling public. The ramp will be reopened each morning by 6:00 a.m.
In addition to the ramp closures, there will be a rolling road block that will last no longer than 15 minutes per occurrence to allow for the placement of the girders on Friday, March 12th and Monday, March 15th.
The anticipated schedule is:
Wednesday, March 3rd – ramp closed
Friday, March 5th – ramp closed
Monday, March 8th – ramp closed
