BOSSIER CITY, La. - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced today that all major construction work for La. 511 (East 70th Street) from Fern Avenue to Line Avenue has been completed.

Crews will continue cleanup efforts and minor work for approximately one month. Motorists can expect short-term single lane closures as the cleanup and minor work is being performed.

The $4.4 million improvement project, which began in April 2013, widened and resurfaced the eastbound and westbound lanes of La. 511 between Fern Avenue and Creswell Road and constructed a center turn lane. In addition, the project resurfaced the existing roadway from Creswell Road to Line Avenue.

DOTD appreciates your patience as we continue to improve our infrastructure and reminds you to always drive with caution through construction sites and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.
