The opening of Bogue Chitto State Park near Franklinton has been delayed due to road construction.

Workers are paving the existing dirt road from Highway 25 to the park entrance, along with select roads within the park.

The 1786-acre site includes small streams, cypress tupelo swamps, a hardwood-forested gorge and upland forests. For more information about Bogue Chitto State Park, visit www.lastateparks.com or call 1-877-226-7652.

The opening of the park is now set for sometime in May.
