September 14, 2023

The I-20 rehabilitation project will fully remove and replace the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-20 from near Hamilton Road to Industrial Drive in Bossier City. The project also includes extensive pavement repair work from Pines Road to Market Street in Shreveport, and on the eastern end of the project from Industrial Drive to I-220.

About the Project:
• The full rehabilitation portion of the project is approximately 3.6 miles, with an additional seven miles of concrete pavement repair.
• The project went to bid in May 2023 at a cost of $117.6 million. The contractor is JB James Construction, LLC.
• Construction is starting in mid-September 2023, and is anticipated to take approximately two years to complete. During the rehab work, one lane will be closed in each direction.

Traffic Management Plan:
• This project includes an innovative queue detection system that alerts motorists in real time that they are approaching the work zone and should consider utilizing an alternate route.
• Additional portable dynamic message boards (DMS) will be utilized throughout the duration of the project in advance of the work zone, as well as at the various interstate interchanges in both Bossier and Caddo Parishes.
• The permanent dynamic message boards along I-20, I-220 & I-49 will also be used during the course of construction to give motorists updated information concerning closures, travel times, alternative route information, and incident or special event information.
• DOTD is directing motorists on I-20 to utilize I-220 as the primary detour in order to reduce delays and avoid the construction zone.
• DOTD will provide project updates via email through the MyDOTD system, project page on the DOTD website, and social media platforms.
