A couple of road projects will cause congestion in a busy area of North Bossier next week.

Beginning Monday, the 24th, one lane of Airline Drive between Barksdale Boulevard and Texas Street will be closed for concrete patching. There will be periodic lane-shifting during the month-long project.

Friday, the 28th, the I-20 westbound lane bridge over ICG Railroad, just west of Airline Drive, will be down to one lane. The left lane will be closed between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. for guardrail repair. The onramp from Airline to I-20 W will also be closed during those hours. Only vehicles 12 feet wide or smaller will be able to pass through the construction zone. Larger vehicles will have to detour using Airline Drive, Industrial Drive, Benton Road and I-20.

All the work will be done weather permitting.
