TRAVEL ADVISORY: I-20 blocked in multiple locations due to accidents

689

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that I-20 is blocked in multiple locations due to accidents, including in Caddo and Lincoln Parishes. These crashes are being worked by law enforcement.

Traffic is at a standstill where these crashes have occurred, and motorists are strongly urged to avoid the interstate if travel is necessary.

Additionally, I-20 eastbound remains CLOSED from Industrial Drive in Bossier City to Goodwill Road in Webster Parish due to roadway conditions.

Road conditions remain hazardous due to accumulated snow and ice as a result of two winter storms impacting the state.

Alternate route: US 80 for eastbound and westbound traffic. Southbound traffic may use US 71 (or I-49 south of Bert Kouns) to I-10 to continue eastbound or westbound.

Restrictions/Permits: N/A
