The Police Department has seen an increase in both vehicular and pedestrian traffic since the water began to rise. At the present time pedestrian traffic will not be affected. We realize that this is an historic event and everyone wants to see the rising waters so we ask that you find a safe place to park on the eastside of River Road, not obstructing traffic flow, and walk across the road to the levee. We ask that you use caution while crossing the road and again while around the high water.
The Police Department will have officers in the area of the levee to ensure the safety of the public and to enforce all restrictions until the water recedes.
