FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Natchitoches Parish President Rick Nowlin announces that, weather permitting, the one block section of Payne Drive located between Michelle Drive and Miller Drive will be temporarily closed to all traffic on Monday, May 1, 2017.
The temporary road closure is necessary in order to allow Parish Highway crews to make repairs to both abutments of a short timber bridge located within that block of Payne Drive.
It is anticipated that the temporary closure will begin around 8:00 a.m. and extend until late afternoon.
Because of the continued closure of a bridge on Miller Drive that was damaged during the March 8, 2016, flash flood event, traffic must detour around the work area via Michelle Drive and Cherie Drive.
For more information, please contact the Parish Highway Department at (318) 357-2200.
