Road closure tonight

I-20 eastbound at Exit 47 (Minden) will be closed tonight (Tuesday, January 25), for crash attenuator repair. Closure will take place beginning at 8 p.m. weather permitting, and reopen at 6 a.m. Wednesday, January 26.

A crash attenuator, also known as an impact attenuator is a device intended to reduce the damage to structures, vehicles and lessen injuries to motorists resulting from a collision. They are designed to absorb the colliding vehicle’s energy.

This is a total ramp closure, and all vehicles must detour. Detour signage will be in place, and traffic will be detoured to Exit 49 (La. Hwy. 531).
