Road Closure: LA 1221, Natchitoches Parish

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD), advises the public that on October 25, 2016 at 8:00 am, LA 1221 will be closed 2.6 miles north of its junction with LA 120. The intent of this closure is to remove a 96-inch double barrel metal pipe and replace with a 72 inch four-barrel concrete pipe. This closure is expected to last 30 days.

Permit/Detour Section
The roadway will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the pipe replacement. There will not be a detoured route as this route ends approximately 1.3 miles north of the pipe replacement, which starts the beginning of Natchitoches Parish road named Bethany Highway Extension.

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