I think we can all agree that road construction can be frustrating, however, despite the inconvenience, when the interchange between I-20 and I-220 in Bossier Parish is complete with access to Barksdale Air Force Base, it'll all be worth it!

Due to the recent inclement weather *ahem* things got a bit behind schedule for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development through no fault of their own. As a result, we have a new proposed schedule.

Beginning Monday, March 8, 2021, the I-220 eastbound to I-20 eastbound ramp at the interchange in Bossier Parish will be closed between the hours of 7:00 pm and 6:00 am.

The revised anticipated schedule is as follows:
Monday, March 8th - ramp closed
Wednesday, March 10th - ramp closed
Friday, March 12th - ramp closed
Monday, March 15th - ramp closed
Wednesday, March 17th - rolling roadblock
Friday, March 19th - rolling roadblock

Oh, but that's not all! We have a lane closure to deal with this week as well.

Due to recent inclement weather, the dates for these lane closures have been revised. Thursday, March 4, 2021, there will be a lane closure on I-20 eastbound at the I-220 interchange in Bossier Parish. This work will be performed between the hours of 7:00 pm and 1:00 pm.

Previous estimates had this project being completed by year-end. Let's keep our fingers crossed that that's still the case!
