Lane/Shoulder Closures: I-20/I-220 Interchange in Bossier Parish
Written by Mark Chreene on June 2, 2020
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that 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, as of Monday, June 1, 2020.
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.
The intermittent lane/shoulder closures on I-20 are expected to last approximately 30 days.
Other intermittent ramp closures at the interchange may be necessary as work progresses.
These lane/shoulder closures are in addition to the complete closure of the I-220 eastbound to I-20 westbound ramp that remains in place. This ramp closure is estimated to last until early August 2020.
The $71.8 million project will create a new access road into Barksdale Air Force base extending southward from the existing I-20/I-220 interchange. The entire project is anticipated to be complete in Fall 2021, weather permitting.
