Starting this week you can expect delays if you drive on East 70th St. in Shreveport.

Beginning Wednesday, April 2 resurfacing operations will get underway from Fern Ave. to Line Ave.   The work is expected to take two weeks to complete. 

This improvement project, which began in April 2013, will widen and resurface the eastbound and westbound lanes of La. 511 between Fern Ave.
and Creswell Rd. and construct a center turn lane.  In addition, the project will resurface the existing roadway from Creswell Rd. to Line Ave.

Meanwhile, the contractor has been working on constructing the tie-ins at the city streets, installing new traffic lights, sidewalks, and driveways.

DOTD officials say the overall project should be wrapped up sometime in May.
