Nightly Lane Closures On I-20 Near Dixie Inn To Begin Wednesday
Written by Special to KBEF on August 1, 2022
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that beginning on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, there will be intermittent nighttime moving lane closures on both I-20 eastbound and westbound between the US 80 overpass approximately 3 miles west of Dixie Inn and the Dixie Inn interchange (Exit 44) in Webster Parish.
These moving lane closures will take place between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. each night, and are associated with a $613,749 project to replace the pavement markings on this section of I-20.
This project includes the replacement of all the reflectorized pavement markings, pavement striping where appropriate, and other related work.
Motorists should be aware that this work involves slow-moving operations. Please pay attention to advanced warning signage and flashing lights, and proceed with caution through the construction zone.
Pavement markings are used to convey messages to roadway users. They indicate which part of the road to use, provide information about conditions ahead, and indicate where passing is allowed.
Pavement markings provide continuous information to motorists related to roadway alignment, vehicle positioning, and other important driving-related tasks.
The entire project is anticipated to be complete in Fall 2022, with progress dependent on weather conditions and other factors.
