The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development reminds 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, August 4, 2021.
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. Motorists are advised to watch for detour and advance warning signage during the occurrences.
Note: These intermittent closures are in addition to the I-220 eastbound to I-20 eastbound ramp closure scheduled for Monday, August 9, 2021.
The entire project, which is extending southward from the existing interchange creating a new road leading into BAFB, is anticipated to be complete in late 2021, weather permitting.
Alternate route: Detour signage will be in place when necessary.
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.
Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
