The Lincoln Parish Highway Department and contractors will begin clearing Parish Maintained roads on Feb. 20. The priority will be the highest traveled roads in the parish first. Work will be slow due to icy conditions still existing so please be patient. If you do see work crews in your area please keep your distance for safety. Again we request that if you do not need to be on the roads please stay home until conditions improve. Remember that even if a road looks clear black ice could still exist in some areas and extreme caution is warranted.
