Some Sleet Arrives in Shreveport-Bossier Causing Problems on I-220
A mixture of sleet and snow arrives in Shreveport Bossier.
Several accidents at I-220 and I-20 in Bossier City near the Racetrack in Bossier City force police to close the ramps to I-220 this morning. DOTD has checked out the entire loop around the north part of the city and just tweeted this message:
All lanes are open on I-220 West at I-20 (Bossier). There is no congestion from this incident.
