DOTD announces a project to provide repairs to two Shreveport highways

SHREVEPORT – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces a project to improve a section of LA 511 (W. 70th Street) and LA 523 (Line Avenue) in Shreveport, Caddo Parish.

The $473,454 project was awarded to Progressive Construction Co., LLC, and is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. Work includes concrete panel and joint repair to several locations along these two roadways.

Repairs on LA 511 will stretch from Linwood Avenue to Mansfield Road, and on LA 523 from Ashley Ridge to 70th Street.

Intermittent lane closures will be necessary to allow for construction activities to take place.

The entire project is anticipated to wrap up in early Summer 2024, with progress dependent on weather conditions and other factors that can impact construction timelines.

Safety reminder:

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.
