Bridge Inspection Could Slow I-20 Traffic

Drivers on Interstate 20, particularly through Bossier City, could be in for some delays caused by scheduled road work Wednesday.  The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says a crew will be conducting a routine inspection of the Red River bridge in Bossier City between the hours of 9:00 a. m. and 3:00 p. m.
   The work will restrict traffic to just two lanes on the eastbound side of the bridge.  Additionally, the DOTD says the on-ramps to I-20 east from northbound Youree Drive and southbound Market Street will be closed all together during the inspection.
   According to a DOTD press release, the project is scheduled for one day, weather permitting.  Check back with this website for any potential changes in that schedule.
