As water levels continue to rise, so does flooding concern all around the Red River.
The river currently sits at 31.35 ft, about an inch away from moderate flood level. (see below)
How is it affecting us?
At 30.5ft, Water flows into Traffic Street underneath the Kansas City Southern railroad bridge between Horseshoe Casino and Louisiana Boardwalk in Bossier City.
At 31 feet, Russel Road will be overflowed and closed between Blanchard highway and Interstate 220 in north Shreveport. Also expect backwater flooding up Cross Bayou, Twelve Mile Bayou, and lower McCain Creek. High water will creep up to near southern Fant Parkway and near the Teague Parkway.
The river is expected to crest soon, but Tuesday’s rainfall can push that back a bit.
