Sheriff’s Road Report

From the Red River Sheriff’s Office:  Many people have called our office asking about the status of the Red River Bridge in Coushatta. IT IS OPEN and has remained so throughout this unusual winter weather event thanks to the excellent work of the DOTD staff.

While the bridge is open, our request remains the same…please stay home and don’t travel unless it is essential or an emergency. Roads throughout the parish remain icy and hazardous at this time.

Monday the Sheriff’s Office reported, Throughout the day our deputies have patrolled the parish and, as of 4:15 pm, had responded to ten minor weather-related traffic incidents. Thankfully no injuries were reported.

Your safety is our top priority! Please…unless it is essential or an emergency, stay home and off the roadways until weather and road conditions improve. Thank you.

Please stay safe and warm!
