Louisiana State Police Troop G spokesperson Brent Hardy wants to dispel rumors about Louisiana roadways.
“Throughout the week, Louisiana State Police Troop G has received many phone calls about possible road closures as a result of COVID-19,” Hardy said.
“In an effort to dispel these rumors, Louisiana State Police would like to reiterate the fact that currently there are no plans to close any roadways. We ask the public to please obtain information from reliable sources and refrain from spreading misinformation.”
Hardy said residents should look to official sources for such information.
“Road closures and detours can be found using the Louisiana Traveler Information System through several different methods including the 511 phone system, www.511la.org, Louisiana DOTD Twitter accounts, and the “Louisiana 511” smartphone application,” he said.
