Parish Road Closings – 01-20-17

Traffic-Closed

Natchitoches Parish President Rick Nowlin advises the public that the following roads in the Parish system are closed as a result of flooding from the heavy rainfall received earlier this week:

Emmanuel Road at Bayou Barbue
Lake Gorum Road
Good Hope Road near LA-120

In addition, there is high water adjacent to the following roads at this time, which may result in overtopping within the next several hours with the continued accumulation of runoff from the affected drainage basins:

Longlois Hill Road near LA-120
Old River Road near LA-120
Hymes Road

Motorists are cautioned not to attempt to travel through flooded sections of road, as hazards may be present that cannot be seen from the surface of the water.
