Street closure, all-way stop announced

Louisiana Tech has announced a pedestrian path that will be closed through the first weekend of September.

The pedestrian pathway bridge over the railroad tracks between Railroad and Western Street will be closed to travel through Labor Day Weekend.  This closure is to allow for continued work on the alumni brick walkway. 

Pedestrians are urged to plan their walking travel routes to include either the Everett Street bridge or Tech Drive as they navigate across campus. 

Motorists are also encouraged to be extra cautious while traveling on Railroad Avenue by the pedestrian bridge during the day when crews are working due to one lane closure at the crosswalk by the bridge.  Be aware of oncoming traffic before navigating through the one available lane.

Additionally, the City of Ruston has converted the intersection of Dan Reneau and Monroe Street to an all way stop intersection.  All vehicle traffic on Dan Reneau and South Monroe Street will be required to stop at this intersection.  Some of the lane marking approaching this intersection from east and west on Dan Reneau have changed so motorists should be attentive and cautious and they approach and enter this intersection.
