Fort Polk's Louisiana Avenue from LA Hwy 467 to the Main Gate will be closed from 4:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. daily beginning today through Wednesday due to construction.

To exit post and avoid delays and congestion please use Gate 5 (post office), or Gate 2, (VA Clinic/Parkway Elementary); or Gate 4 (near TASC). Both Gates 2 & 5 will be open from 5 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It is recommended to enter the Dogwood housing area using Holmund St. and Bell Richard Ave. to enter the Palmetto Housing area.

This closure is expected to remain in place through Wednesday (Nov. 20). The road will be opened during the day, however, delays should be expected as construction continues on Louisiana Avenue.
