(KNOE) - Roads in our region are still being repaired following the devastating flooding last March.

Tuesday a road in the D'Arbonne National Wildlife Refuge will be closed to repair culverts damaged in the 2016 flood.

As a result, Hollands Bluff Road and Boat Launch on D'Arbonne Refuge will be closed Tuesday through Friday for repairs.

Wildlife officials say additional heavy rains over the past weeks have caused the roadway to deteriorate further, making the closure necessary now.

Anyone needing more information on the closure should call 318-726-4222.
