BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Commuters will need to find an alternate route next week due to an interstate ramp closure in Bossier Parish.
Originally scheduled for Monday but rescheduled to August 16th, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, says the I-220 eastbound to I-20 eastbound ramp at the I-220 interchange will be shut down from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m., and during the same hours on August 17th.
The closure is necessary for bridge construction activities over the ramp related to the ongoing construction of the new I-220/I-20 Barksdale Air Force Base interchange project.
The DOTD wants to remind everyone to drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
