Icy road conditions are possible tonight and on Tuesday. Lafourche Parish is also under a MANDATORY CURFEW from 8:00 PM tonight through 8:00 AM tomorrow.
With that said, we strongly urge everyone to stay home and off the roads if at all possible today and tomorrow, especially during the hard freeze period which is projected for 6:00 PM tonight through noon on Tuesday. For those who MUST drive due to work or otherwise, allow yourself an extra 30 minutes or more to arrive at your destination. If roads are icy, SLOW DOWN and follow these safety tips.
Bridges tend to be affected by icy conditions more quickly than roads. We know this could be impossible for some, but try to avoid bridges when driving or limit your route to crossing as few as possible.
Check for road closures around the state at 511LA. If there are any major road closures in our area, we'll relay them to you on through text message alerts and on our CURRENT ALERTS page..
We're still here and we'll be working to keep everyone safe.
For you. For us. Better. Together.
