I-220 / I-20 Interchange improveMENT & bafb Access design-build

Location: Shreveport, Louisiana    
Dates: August 2018 – On – going

Huval and Associates, as Lead Designer, teamed with James Construction Group for the I-220 / I-20 Interchange Improvement and Barksdale Airforce Base Design- Build Project and was selected by the LADOTD in February 2019.

The project consists of extending I-220 as a 4-lane freeway (Barksdale Access Road) south over I-20 to proposed ramp gores for ramps W-S and S-E at Musselshell Bayou then continuing south as a 4-lane rural arterial, crossing over the KCS RR, ending on the BAFB property.

Saving $10 Million dollars for the LADOTD, a HUVAL developed Alternative Technical Concept (ATC) was accepted by the LADOTD and incorporated into the project.

This ATC changed the IMR concept for the I-220 / Barksdale Road Northbound exit to the I-20 westbound entrance (Ramp NB-WB) from an elevated semi-direct flyover ramp to an at-grade loop ramp. This ATC partial cloverleaf design extends the collector-distributor road for the I-20 westbound exit to the I-220  southbound entrance included in the IMR concept in order to connect NB to WB traffic to the I-220 Southbound to I-20 Westbound entrance ramp.

Huval’s responsibilities for the I-220 interchange project include Lead Designer, Project management, Roadway Geometrics, Bridge Design, Sequence of Construction, and Traffic Planning.

Huval is also providing construction engineering support for James Construction Group during the construction phase of the project.
