ROAD CLOSURE DUE TO HIGH WATER: LA 1146, Vernon Parish


The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that LA 1146 from US 71 to the Beauregard Parish line in Vernon Parish is closed due to high water as a result of recent heavy rainfall.

DOTD reminds motorists to never drive around or move ‘road closed’ barricades at any time for any reason. This behavior is extremely unsafe, as well as against the law.

Additionally, never drive through standing water, no matter how shallow the water appears to be.

Safety reminder:

DOTD appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through the construction site and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment.

Area residents should exercise caution when driving, walking, or biking near an active construction zone.
