Since the I-20 reconstruction project began months ago, driving through Bossier City has become quite an obstacle.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has just issued a notice to motorists that beginning on Sunday, March 10, there will be intermittent shoulder closures on various bridges and overpasses on I-220 westbound from the I-20 interchange to the Red River in Bossier Parish.

Of course, we all know that all commercial vehicles such as 18-wheelers are prohibited from driving through the I-20 reconstruction zone in Bossier City and are relegated to using I-220 to move through the area, so any slowing of this increased traffic slow, will make things a lot more difficult.

Watch Out For Maintenance Crews This Sunday On I-220 Westbound

Such is the case for this Sunday as DOTD maintenance crews will be working from approximately 7:00 am to 3:30 pm to remove trash and debris from the bridge decks along this section of I-220 westbound.

Please be aware that personnel and necessary equipment will be on site, so motorists are strongly urged to drive with caution through the area while these operations are underway.


This DOTD Project Could See Changes Should Bad Weather Move In The Area

As with all DOTD projects, this work will be performed weather permitting, so there is a possibility that inclement weather could postpone, lengthen or change the times of this work.

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.

Call 511, visit, or download the Louisiana 511 mobile app for additional information. Out-of-state travelers may call 1-888-ROAD-511 (1-888-762-3511). Motorists may also monitor the LA DOTD website at, by selecting MyDOTD, or by visiting the DOTD Facebook and Twitter pages.
