The parking lot at the Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Substation is covered with water. As a precautionary measure to residents, the substation will be closed until further notice.

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington has closed the Arthur Ray Teague Substation for safety reason due to high water from the Red River spilling onto the parking lot. The substation will be closed until further notice.

The substation is located at 3135 Arthur Ray Teague Parkway in Bossier City and serves as home for the Sheriff’s Marine Patrol. It’s also a convenient location for South Bossier residents to pay their taxes, court fees, tickets and fines without having to drive further north to the substation on Viking Drive or the Courthouse in Benton.

However, due to this temporary closure residents can still pay their taxes or fines at the Viking Drive Substation, located at 2510 Viking Dr. in Bossier City, or you can make their payments in the Bossier Parish Courthouse located at 204 Burt Blvd. in Benton.

While the water levels remain high on the Red River the substation will stay closed to ensure public safety.
