Ascension road to close Oct. 16
PRAIRIEVILLE - The scheduled closure of Duplessis Road at La. 73 in Ascension Parish will begin on Wednesday, October 16.
The road will re-open on Wednesday, October 30.
The road closure had previously been scheduled to begin on October 9.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the closure was pushed back after constuction crews were delayed by the approach of Tropical Storm Karen.
Drivers can take La. 73 to La. 621, east to Tiggy Duplessis Road and then north to Duplessis Road.
Duplessis Road may also be entered at its intersection with Airline Highway.
