You know; I am sure I seem like a know-it-all, I don't.

I have looked at the existing I-49 / I-220 intersection and I cannot see for the life of me where the Inner City Connector would come out of it.
Iíve got 2 images that may help out. The first from aaroads and the second from bayoubrief.com

49 will turn more southward instead of continuing SW through the I-220 interchange. The second image shows the path still to be chosen through the Allendale neighborhood just west of downtown Shreveport.

It seems the mainlanes of I-49 would have to be the top level of the stack.  I drive through here several times a week and  I just cannot find a gap at any lower level even skewing more to the east.

Eyeballing the Google Streetview images of the area, it looks to me like there is plenty of room between the EB I-220 to NB I-49 ramp and the I-220 mainline roadways for another level of bridges, those being for the future I-49 mainline.

The I-69 frontage road (also known as the I-49 Port Connector project) is moving along slowly, but Stage 0 of the environmental process should be completed by the New Year. NLCOGís June 19 draft minutes indicate that:

The Draft Minutes also indicate that  an Open House for the LA 3132 extension has been delayed because of COVID.

A Feb. 22 TV video discusses these projects:

I forgot to mention that the Open House is for the general public to review the Environmental Assessment, which can be found here:

At least as of now, it appears the I-49 port connector (AKA I-69 frontage road) is to a point that they have the funding in place unless state funding is reduced.  It connects I-49 to the Shreveport side of the port of Shreveport / Bossier
