Traffic Alert: Traffic lights out at the north end of the Benton Rd. Overpass


From the Bossier City Police Department:

The traffic lights at the intersection of Benton Road and the north end of the Benton Road Overpass (near the old Kroger store) are out today after a motor vehicle crashed into the traffic light box and a SWEPCO utility pole overnight at that location. As a result, traffic traveling on Benton Road (the portion in front of the Bossier City Municipal Complex) will not be able to drive through the intersection. That traffic will instead have to utilize Beckett Street. Traffic traveling north and south on Benton Road via the Benton Road Overpass is not affected. Crews hope to have power restored and the traffic light box replaced by late afternoon.
