Roadway conditions in and around the Lincoln Parish area are dangerous. If one does have an absolute need to travel today, please remain off of the roadway(s). Patches of ice are present in sporadic locations on both primary and secondary roadways. Both the school system and the Court systems have shut down for the day.

Out of an abundance of caution, Sheriff Stone is urging persons to stay at home, if possible, and to not drive unless absolutely necessary. The State of Louisiana’s DOTD website is attempting to keep roadway conditions current, but keep in mind, conditions are ever changing. Again, to error on the side of safety, please stay off of the roadway unless it is imperative that you travel.
