Natchitoches Parish President Rick Nowlin announces that the Nelson Road near Marthaville has been re-opened to traffic.
This road had been closed to through traffic since late January after heavy rainfall resulted in a cross-drain being washed out near the intersection of the Johnnie Doolittle Road. High flows in the channel at this location delayed the replacement of this cross-drain by the Parish Highway Department.
Parish officials wish to express their thanks to citizens affected by the extended road closure for their patience.
Questions may be directed to the Parish Highway Department at (318) 357-2200
