******A representative with Union Pacific Railroad just issued a statement at 2:25 p.m. that the issue has been resolved and the train that has blocked the By-pass, Pan Am and Towne South should be moving within 20 minutes. See the Thursday edition of the Natchitoches Times for the full story.
The Natchitoches Hwy 1 By-Pass has been blocked by a train for over two hours today, Tuesday, May 22. Please take an alternate route. The Natchitoches Times is investigating the cause. Updates will be posted as they become available.
Access to Sylvan Drive and Hill Street is through the access road at the intersection of Woodyard and Rapides.
