Ascension, Livingston Parish waterways reopen Wednesday
UPDATE: All Ascension Parish waterways have reopened to the public. Livingston Parish waterways will reopen at 6 p.m.
Waterways in both Ascension and Livingston parishes are still closed for recreational use after the area braced for Tropical Storm Barry this weekend.
Parish officials first announced they were closing all inland waterways Saturday evening. On Tuesday they announced the waterways would remain closed due to potentially dangerous river currents.
They gave no indication of when the waterways might reopen.
