Commuters beware: I-20/I-49 interchange to be closed

by David Specht

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that on the nights of Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23, 2019, the ramp from I-20 eastbound to I-49 southbound will be closed from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

This closure is related to a project to repair joints on the bridge decks of I-20 in Caddo, Bienville and Webster Parishes, as well as I-49 in Caddo Parish.

Additionally, intermittent nightly lane closures will begin on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at the I-20 interchange with I-49 in Shreveport, Caddo Parish.

Motorists can expect Phase 1 of nightly lane closures to begin on the following bridges in Caddo Parish:

  • I-20 westbound ramp to I-49 southbound
  • Murphy Street on-ramp to I-49 southbound
  • I-49 northbound ramp to I-20 eastbound

The earliest these nighttime lane closures will begin is 7:00 p.m., with all lanes open by 6:00 a.m. Daytime lane closures will be permitted on weekends. This phase is anticipated to last approximately three (3) weeks.
