Shreveport, Bossier City public boat launches temporarily closed

Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Shreveport, Bossier City public boat launches closed from rainfall.

According to a statement from the Red River Waterway Commission, public boat launches on the Red River in Caddo and Bossier parishes will be closed beginning Dec. 23.

These include the Teague Parkway facility in Bossier City, the Stoner Avenue facility in Shreveport, the North Caddo/Bossier facility at the Hwy 2 bridge between Plain Dealing and Hosston and the Bishop Point facility south of Shreveport on Hwy 1 at Lock & Dam No. 5.

Rainfall in the Red River watershed has caused a minor rise on the Red River in the Shreveport/Bossier area. The Commission said launching a boat into the river without the use of a dock is not recommended. People wishing to access the river are advised to contact the private marinas for current launching conditions.

Boat ramps are expected to re-open as soon as conditions are deemed safe for public use by the Commission.

For more information regarding these closures, contact the Red River Waterway Commission at (318) 352-7446 or visit www.redriverwaterway.com.
