News Release from the state transportation department:
US 371 (E. Carroll St) in Coushatta, Red River Parish. [Actually US 84 instead of US 371. See editors note below.]
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development advises motorists that beginning on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, US 371 (E. Carroll Street) near its intersection with LA 480 in the Town of Coushatta, Red River Parish will be closed at the railroad crossing.
This closure is scheduled to take place beginning at 6:00 a.m. on May 9th until 6:00 a.m. on May 11th. It is necessary to allow CPKC (formerly KCS Railroad) to perform repairs to their tracks.
Alternate route: Detour signage will be in place.
Restrictions/Permits: Total road closure at the specified location. All vehicles will need to detour.
Editor’s Note: East Carroll St. is actually US 84 running from the 4-Way stop at the Red River Bridge to the South Y in town. The map is misleading in that it places US 371 on the portion from the 4-Way across the bridge. There is no marking to indicate US 84 on East Carroll.
