BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Trucks were loaded with sand in Ascension Parish on Wednesday afternoon, ready to roll in a moment's notice.
"We will have four trucks loaded
with sand and if there's need for sand out there, we're going by what the
Sheriff's Office says. They've got deputies on roadways checking out situation
and if it's needed we will send crews out," said Ascension Parish spokesman
The focus is roadways with high
elevation or bridges, something there are plenty of in Ascension Parish.
"We're asking residents to be
cautious," added Kenyon. "If they are driving on the parish roads, please take
your time and don't speed."
The same advice comes from the
Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development. In Baton Rouge, state
workers were busy prepping 160,000 pounds of salt and 3,500 cubic yards of sand
or more than enough to lay down over a foot of dirt on the ground of Tiger
"We're really beefing up our
efforts. We are going to be monitoring it throughout the night and our priority
is to keep those roadways open," said DOTD Communications director Jodi
Roadways that officials hope will
have as few motorists as possible, at least through the overnight hours.
"Obviously when ice is out there
we will be as prepared as we can we'll close things as necessary but we do want
people to stay home if they can and be careful when they drive, be cautious,
pay attention and obey the speed limit and obey all rules of the road," said
