Stretches of interstate closed for cold weather
SHREVEPORT - State traffic officials closed two sections of interstates in northwest Louisiana Tuesday afternoon in anticipation of wintry weather.
DOTD closed portions of I-49 in Caddo Parish, and I-220 in Caddo and Bossier parishes. They said this would let them focus their available resources on priority routes with higher traffic volume.
