Part of James Street to be closed

For those residents traveling to Ruston High School today, make sure to be aware of a partial road closure of James Street.

The city of Ruston has announced it will close part of James Street beginning today — weather permitting — and it will remain closed for several days.

The portion of James Street that will be closed will be from the South Service Road up to Lee Street. Drivers will still be able to access James Street from Lee Street.

This can cause slower arrival and departure times for individuals driving to and from RHS, and the school has announced that routes into and out of campus will remain the same.

Because individuals’ routes to and from RHS for drop off and/or pick up could be slower, RHS has posted traffic flow guidelines when planning a possible alternate route, which is noted in the picture above.
