This morning, Monday July 25th, 2011 from the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m, both the east and west ramps to Interstate 220 at North Market (Highways 1 and 71) will be closed temporarily as AEP/SWEPCO crews move power lines across this portion of the interstate.  Motorists are encouraged to use Grimmett Drive and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to Russell Road as alternate routes.

We would like to take this opportunity to once again remind motorists to remember to tailor their driving habits to suit the prevailing conditions.  Slow down and allow yourself more time to get where you are going.

If you encounter any kind of hazardous road conditions please call the Shreveport Police Department immediately at 318-673-BLUE (2583) or, in the event of an emergency, 911.  When its safe to do so, we would also like for you to call us on the KISS Country Seize The Deal Traffic Hotline at 687-ROAD (687-7623).
