DENHAM SPRINGS - Due to weather delays, and Good Friday, Canadian National Railway announced they would push the closing of the last railroad crossing to need service in the Denham Springs area to Friday and Saturday, April 26th and 27th.
The same time as Springfest, which will occur in the Antique District of Downtown Denham Springs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Highway 16 southbound will be closed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Denham Springs officials urge drivers to used Cockerham and Lockhart Road to Eden Church, then to Highway 190, or River Road as their alternate routes.
Canadian National has been closing railroad crossings in Livingston Parish for roughly three weeks as the crossings are repaired. Hatchell Lane's closing was initially scheduled for Thursday and Friday of last week, but inclement weather and Good Friday pushed those plans back.
