“The Tangipahoa Parish Road and Bridge crew, along with representatives of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, will be helping to reopen our local boat launches on the south side of LA 22,” Miller said.

The move is in cooperation with two other parishes that closed waterways to recreational traffic last week.

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, Tangipahoa Parish officials closed the waterways south of LA 22 due to deteriorating weather conditions and concerns for tidal flooding. Officials in Livingston and Ascension also closed their local waterways to recreational traffic in advance of Hurricane Nate.
