The City of Natchitoches would like to advise the public that effective Friday, Aug. 11 the intersection of Lafayette Street and Second Street will become a four-way stop.
This decision was made in an effort to slow down Second Street traffic and make it safer for pedestrians crossing at the intersection. Mayor Lee Posey stated, “Second Street has become a major thoroughfare with more events being hosted in the downtown area. Adding a four way stop will help slow down traffic, ensuring the safety of motorists and pedestrians as they utilize Downtown Natchitoches.”
The City of Natchitoches appreciates the public’s patience while these improvements are being made and reminds everyone to use extra caution at the intersection as drivers and pedestrians become accustomed to the new four-way stop.
