Roads closed due to revitalization project

East Park Avenue between North Vienna Street and North Bonner Street in downtown Ruston is closed until further notice.

The closure is necessary for the Downtown Revitalization Phase 6 Project. This project will update the streetscape, sidewalks, light posts and other small improvements in the downtown area.

This project is running at the same time as the Monroe Street Project and encompasses a seven-block area downtown. 

While this is a multi-step project, any downtown road closure will be posted on the city’s website and posted on Code RED alert system. Residents can sign up for Code RED alerts by clicking here. Updates included are road closures, if city offices are closed, electric outages and water outages. 

“Progress sometimes has a few pains and this is part of it,” said Ruston Mayor Ronny Walker in his recent Facebook video. “We hope you understand and work with us on that.”
