Intermittent Lane and / or Shoulder Closures at I-220 Interchange


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, according to the state Dept. of Transportation and Development.

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. 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. Detour signage will be in place when necessary.

Officials say the entire project, which is extending southward from the existing interchange creating a new road into BAFB, is anticipated to be complete in late 2021, weather permitting.

DOTD reminds motorists to please drive carefully through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and equipment. Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
