The old adage goes, "Nothing is certain except change" and that has certainly proven to be the case with the I-20/I-220/Barksdale Air Force Base interchange construction project.

After advising us earlier this week that there would be nightly lane closures beginning this week as the construction continues, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has now issued an update that the closures have been delayed.

Anyone in the construction industry can certainly understand why and how these things change, but with so many schedule changes over the last several weeks, motorists might find themselves somewhat confused.

In the latest update from the La DOTD, we see that those closures will now be conducted as follows:

  • Wednesday, September 29, 2021: I-20 eastbound to I-220 westbound ramp closed from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Outside lane of I-220 westbound between I-20 & US 80 will also be closed during the same time period.
  • Thursday, September 30, 2021: US 80 to I-220 eastbound ramp closed from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Inside lane of I-220 eastbound between I-20 & US 80 will also be closed during the same time period.
  • Friday, October 1, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. – Monday, October 4, 2021 at 5:00 a.m.: I-20 eastbound to I-220 westbound ramp closed. Outside lane of I-220 westbound between I-20 & US 80 will also be closed during the same time period.
  • Saturday, October 2, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. – Monday, October 4, 2021 at 5:00 a.m.: US 80 to I-220 eastbound ramp closed. The inside lane of I-220 eastbound will also be closed between I-20 & US 80 during the same time period.

Of course, if this schedule is also changed, we'll be sure to keep you updated.
