WEATHER WATCH: Road closure list

The Enterprise Boulevard Overpass, between Fournet Street and the I-10 Service Road, and the Shattuck Street Overpass, between Opelousas Street and the I-10 Service Road, are now closed due to icy road conditions. The overpasses will remain closed until further notice.  

Currently, North Martin Luther King Highway remains an alternative route within the city of Lake Charles.  

Local public safety agencies would like to remind residents that emergency services are not affected by these closures and should a resident emergency assistance, dial 911.  

Motorists are urged to avoid travel on roadways if possible. If travel is necessary, motorists should take caution while driving due to the possibility of ice that is not visible.  

All public safety employees and public works crews will be continuously monitoring street conditions.
