Apparently, that time for the Shreveport work has come. And now, the DOTD has issued notice that beginning on Monday, June 3, intermittent nighttime lane closures will take place on I-20 eastbound and westbound in Shreveport.

These lane closures are necessary to allow the contractor for the I-20 rehabilitation project to begin numerous concrete pavement repairs to areas located outside the current major reconstruction zone.

Lane closures will take place from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am on weekdays, and 9:00 pm to 9:00 am on weekends. At least one lane of traffic will be maintained at all times.

The first area to be addressed will be between Pines Road and Monkhouse Drive, with this phase anticipated to last approximately two months, weather permitting. Additional information will be issued as the contractor progresses to future sections.

Work includes repairing damaged sections of roadway down to the base, as well as pouring new concrete panels in order to improve the driving surface and travel experience.

As with all projects from the DOTD, work will be performed weather permitting, so inclement weather could delay, extend or modify work dates/hours.
