LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Officials in Livingston and Ascension parishes announced Monday morning that all waterways are reopening to recreational traffic.

Livingston Parish officials said the waterway closure order was lifted as of 9 a.m. Ascension Parish is opening all boat launches at noon.

The waterway closures were put in place on October 26 as a result of heavy rains that led to flooding throughout the area.

Officials added they ask boaters to be mindful that water levels are still higher than normal in some areas and travel at slower speeds.
