Short-term Road Closure for Toledo Bend Construction Project

(Toledo Bend Reservoir) On Wednesday, December 19 beginning at 10:00 a.m. a 2-mile stretch of Highway 191 and FM 692 will be closed to allow placement of concrete at the Toledo Bend Spillway. The Sabine River Authority of Texas and Sabine River Authority, State of Louisiana is currently under construction to repair superficial concrete on the surface of the spillway. A concrete pour was scheduled to occur Thursday; however, because of the potential for opening spillway gates the concrete will be placed later today from the bridge deck with a pump truck. The road closure is anticipated to last 3-hours and the roadway is expected to reopen by 1:00 p.m.

Detours around the road closure include State Highway 63 (LA Highway 8) in Burkeville and State Highway 21 (LA Highway 6) near Pendleton.

Interested persons should monitor current river and reservoir levels since the Sabine River could reach flood stage and evacuation of persons, animals and property may become necessary
