A portion of a Bossier City street will remain closed for a bit longer. Traffic Street will be closed to thru traffic from the Horseshoe Casino entrance to Broadway Street through the summer. By keeping the road closed for this extended period, it's estimated that the contractor will be able to finish the road widening project by September, rather than the original completion date of spring 2012. That portion of Traffic Street has been closed for the past month while the work is being done. Signs will remain in place on I-20 informing motorists to use Hamilton Road to get to the Louisiana Boardwalk. Detour signs are also in place near the construction area.
