DOTD Says Road Construction on East 70th Street Expected to Take One Year

Why is the traffic on East 70th Street (La 511) between Fern Avenue and Creswell Road always backed up every day?

Road crews are widening and resurfacing the east and westbound lanes of East 70th Street and constructing a center turning lane. The City of Shreveport has to relocate the water lines and AEP SWEPCO is moving utility lines.

Crews are placing concrete barriers at the Black Bayou Bridge and traffic is restricted to only two lanes – one in each direction.

The widening of the bridge will begin after installation of the barriers and construction is expected to take approximately one year to complete. Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes.

For more information contact the DOTD.
