PRAIRIEVILLE – Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez announced Wednesday afternoon parish crews have removed barricades on several roads because back flooding waters receded at those locations.

Assistant Department of Public Works Director Johnny Richardson said crews have removed barricades at Broussard Road, Kay Drive, Idle Hour Road and Lake Street. Summerfield South Road and Airport Drive continue to be barricaded due to water on the roads, Richardson said.
