UPDATE: Sinkhole on Jefferson Street repaired, major work will resume JAN 30

The City of Natchitoches would like to notify the public that the sinkhole located at 401 Jefferson St. has been repaired and will not get any worse.
The existing sewer line has been abandoned and filled with concrete. The sewer line will remain on bypass as materials for the new sewer line and manholes arrive throughout this week.
Major work is expected to resume on Monday, Jan. 30 and construction should take 10 to 14 days to complete. During the time of construction, the roadway will be closed to thru traffic at the Intersections of Jefferson and Poete, Jefferson and Amulet, Amulet and Second St. and the Intersection of Jefferson and Touline St. Please adhere to traffic signs and use caution when traveling near the worksite.
We thank you for your patience while repairs are being made. We will provide updates as needed.
