The Guard has returned home. Members of the Coushatta unit of the Louisiana National Guard, and other reservists who had been called up to the local armory, have been released. They trained on using the boats housed at the armory to become proficient in their operation in the event that they would be needed in southern parts of our state. This past weekend word came that the reservists were being released.
The state Department of Transportation and Development lists one road in the parish as remaining closed due to Hurricane Harvey. That is LA 787 near the junction of LA 155. Other state roads that were closed for a period of time include LA 783, 5.2 miles north of US 71 at Bayou Chicot Bridge and LA 480, which was closed at Lock & Dam #4.
