According to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office, they are getting reports of some icing on parish roads in various locations, but parish roads are still open. 

Drivers are urged to not drive if they do not have to, but if they do, drive slowly, allowing extra time to get to their destination.  Allow a much greater following distance between your vehicle and any that you may be following.  Be very careful on bridges as more than likely ice is present, or will be soon.
