KENTWOOD---Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller said a portion of South Lewiston Road has been closed as of Sunday in order to complete an emergency repair of a high-pressure gas line.
The road closure impacts South Lewiston in the area 1.1 miles between Green Farm Road and J.T. Conerly Road. Miller said crews anticipate the closure to last between three to five days.
