WASHINGTON, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has reopened the boat launch at the Grand Prairie Interstate 49 rest area.
The launch provides access to Lake Dubisson, a popular fishing, water skiing and swimming area a few miles north of Washington.
Transportation department spokeswoman Deidra Druilhet tells The Daily World that the rest area remains closed for renovation.
She says the rest area could reopen in a couple of months after a $2.4 million upgrade is completed.
