Governor John Bel Edwards has declared a State of Emergency due to the hazardous winter weather conditions. He says it’s imperative that people stay home since DOTD crews have a short time to get salt and deicing agents applied to prevent tonight’s cold temperatures to refreeze the roads.
"This enables DOTD to have the most robust salting operation that they can possibly have. We're asking people to stay off the roads and heed the warning of officials until the all clear is given."
