Work Almost Finished On Shreveport-Barksdale Bridge

Traveling between Shreveport and Bossier could soon be easier for drivers.

Construction work on the Shreveport-Barksdale Highway Bridge is nearing completion.

The State Department of Transportation and Development says if all goes as planned, it could open one lane on each bridge by next week.

The goal is to wrap up the entire project by the end of May.

The DOTD started replacing the bridges back in 2005.
