I am not exactly sure what the hold up might be, but once again the nightly closures of the I-20 East entrance ramp from I-220 East in Bossier City, have been rescheduled.

The closures were to have originally taken place on the nights of August 9 and August 10. Then, we got word from the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development that the closures had been moved to August 16 and 17.

Immediately following that update, we received word that the closures would actually take place from Monday, August 16 through Friday August 20, with closures each night.

And now, the latest word we have received is that the closures will take place from Monday, August 23 through Friday, August 27, from 7:00 pm until 6:00 am each night.

I'm not certain that indeed the closures will take place those nights, but that is the latest from the LaDOTD.

Of course, what they are working on is the ongoing construction of the new I-220/I-20/Barksdale Air Force Base Interchange.

The ramp will be reopened each morning by 6:00 am.

Safety Reminder

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.
