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

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.
