SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – You can expect delays getting in and out of Barksdale Air Force Base if you use the West gate.
Starting Tuesday, Sept. 22 Barksdale Blvd. on base will be closed for a construction project.
Both inbound and outbound traffic from the main gate will be affected by traffic rerouting.
Once the job is complete, road construction will provide new drain lines to alleviate flooding.
Road closures are expected to last between 6 to 8 weeks and there will be signs posted to follow along the new route.
