BOSSIER CITY, LA (By: Tom Pace, Talk of the Town) BREAKING: TRAFFIC ADVISORY 7pm 6-29-08  Motorists travelling portions of Viking Drive in Bossier City will need to plan for alternate routes during the hours of 6pm-6am beginning Sunday, June 29th.  Crews continue their work on widening the roadway and improve drainage. 

Part of the work requires the crews to install storm drainpipe at several locations underneath the road. In order to perform this particular work in a safe fashion, sections of Viking Drive between Benton and Airline will close to thru traffic beginning Sunday, June 29 between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night. 

During the much of the work, motorists will have access to establishments along the road but on some nights they will have to take an alternate route to get to their destination. 

The contractor anticipates this phase of the work should be finished by July 3. If is not, the work and closures will resume Sunday, July 6 during the same hours and, if needed, over subsequent nights until the work is complete. 

The project will add a middle turn lane to that stretch of Viking Drive. Crews are also installing concrete storm drain culverts and sidewalks along the roadway. The entire work is expected to be complete by early 2009, weather permitting.
