Road Construction on I-20 Westbound near I-220 Westbound MM (28). All Lanes Affected. Starting 4/3/2024 12:00 PM
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that the lane closure on I-20 westbound in Bossier City has been extended past the I-220 interchange to allow for continued repairs related to the major rehabilitation project that is currently underway. This extended lane closure is scheduled to be in place for approximately one week, and is necessary to allow for sawing and sealing of concrete panel joints on the interstate. Motorists should be aware that they may encounter delays, particularly during peak travel times in the morning and evening. In order to help relieve congestion and vehicle queuing, drivers should utilize the zipper merge method. This method involves staying in the ending lane and merging at the actual merge point when it's safe to do so, instead of miles before the merge point (see included graphic). Inclement weather may result in an extension of the timeline for this lane closure past I-220. Restrictions/Permits: Commercial motor vehicles continue to be prohibited from traveling through the rehabilitation section of the project from Industrial Drive to Hamilton Road, and should utilize the alternate route of I-220. Alternate Route: N/A This work will be performed WEATHER PERMITTING. Safety reminder: DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment. Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.

Construction Work  Active

Construction Work on I-20 Westbound near LA-602 MM (181). Starting 3/29/2024 12:00 PM
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development is kicking off a project to provide a variety of improvements to the Mound Rest Area & Welcome Center along I-20 westbound near the state line in Madison Parish. The $22 million project includes several renovations that will improve the experience for visitors to who stop by the facility. The building itself will be renovated with new wood, brick veneer, and masonry work, as well as new bathroom facilities. There will be updated landscaping, irrigation, a new water distribution and sanitary sewer system, along with expanded parking areas, pavement repairs and new striping and roadway markings. The project also includes an updated CCTV system, electrical components and facility lighting, plus drainage improvements around the site. Work also calls for the removal and replacement of the existing pavilions. The Welcome Center is currently open, but visitors should expect intermittent closures as a result of construction. There is also limited parking at the facility at this time. The entire project is anticipated to be complete in early 2026, with progress dependent on weather conditions and other factors that can impact construction timelines. Rest areas and welcome centers serve an important function in providing a safe place for motorists to stop, access restrooms, and take a much-needed break from travel. These facilities also offer visitors an opportunity to learn more about the region, and appreciate local landscapes and scenery.

Road Construction on I-20 Both Directions from Hamilton Rd MM (20) to I-220 MM (26). All Lanes Affected. Width Restriction: 11ft Additional Restrictions: No Oversized Loads Starting 9/18/2023 12:00 AM
I-20 East and West from Hamilton Road (Mile Marker 20) to I-220 (Bossier/Mile Marker 26) is reduced to one lane with 11 ft. width restrictions. No oversized loads are permitted. In an effort to enhance safety and help ensure effective traffic flow, commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers are prohibited from driving through the I-20 reconstruction zone in Bossier City, effective Thursday, December 21, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. Previous messaging since the start of the project has strongly urged commercial traffic to utilize the primary detour of I-220, but this change will mean that vehicles not adhering to the detour may be issued a citation under Louisiana Revised Statute 32:237. The current traffic configuration includes several narrow bridges that have proven difficult for large commercial vehicles to navigate, resulting in incidents that impact traffic for long periods of time. Digital message boards are placed ahead of each I-220 interchange in Shreveport and Bossier City, as well as at the on- and off-ramps at the interchanges within the reconstruction zone directing those trucks not to enter I-20. This change is also aimed at ensuring major reconstruction work continues to make significant progress, as incidents involving 18-wheelers can impact this work due to the nature of the clean-up and removal process. ALL drivers should be aware of changing traffic conditions that an occur at any time, particularly in a construction area. Be sure to remove all distractions, leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front of you, and adhere to posted speed limits.
