US 165 Northbound and Southbound;

Grant Parish.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that US 165 Northbound and Southbound from the Grant/LaSalle Parish line to the Grant/Rapides Parish line is now re-opened to traffic. Please continue to use caution.

Safety Reminder

DOTD urges motorists to use extra caution when traveling on roadways during hazardous weather conditions and stay off the roads whenever possible. Motorists should drive slowly and carefully, and avoid driving while distracted. Always allow for extra driving time, reduce speeds when visibility is low, and make sure there is plenty of room between vehicles. Also, look out for black ice - a thin, transparent layer of ice accumulation that can be visually hard to detect on bridges, overpasses, off-ramps and in shady spots. As always, DOTD reminds motorists to buckle up and refrain from drinking and driving.
