Construction for the Rue Beauport Riverfront Project will begin Monday, January 9, 2017. Due to the scope of the project, the riverbank will be closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic beginning on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 until the project is completed. Beau Jardin and the Roque House Gardens will remain open throughout the duration of construction.
Once completed, the riverfront will feature a plaza overlook with handicap access to the riverbank, enhanced stage to accommodate a wide range of performances and concerts, promenade along the river’s edge, lawn terrace amphitheater designed into the existing slope in front of the stage, and a permanent restroom facility and plaza at the south end of the riverbank. The City of Natchitoches appreciates the public’s patience while these improvements are being made.
