LANE CLOSURE: I-20 westbound over Red River, Caddo & Bossier Parishes

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that on Tuesday, July 13, 2021, the I-20 westbound bridge over the Red River in Caddo and Bossier Parishes will be restricted to two lanes of traffic.

This lane closure is scheduled to take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and is necessary to allow for routine bridge inspection.
Additionally, the I-20 westbound on-ramp from Traffic Street will be closed as part of the inspection.

Alternate route: Traffic coming onto I-20 from Traffic Street will need to detour via US 80 (Texas Street) to LA 1 (Market Street) to I-20.

The lane closure on I-20 over the Red River will allow vehicles 14 feet wide or smaller to pass through the bridge inspection zone. Larger vehicles must detour using I-220 to LA 1 to LA 3094 to I-20.

Restrictions/Permits: N/A

This work will be performed WEATHER PERMITTING.
