The Department of Transportation and Development District 08 Office in Alexandria has advised that LA 114 between Hessmer and Mansura in Avoyelles Parish has been closed due to HIGH WATER.
Rainfall is occurring very rapidly at times and can quickly cover roadways. Runoff from this excessive rainfall is beginning to cause some flooding in low lying areas. Motorists should drive slowly and carefully, avoid driving while distracted and watch for flooded roadways. Always allow for extra driving time, reduce speeds when visibility is low, and make sure there is plenty of room between vehicles.

DOTD has crews in place to address issues as they occur.
