LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The City of Lake Charles has announced that the I-10 North Beach will be closed as of Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

The city says the closure is a precautionary public health and safety effort due to the increase of COIVD-19 cases and hospitalizations in the area.

This closure includes access to the parking lot at the old Harrah’s Casino site.

The Lake Charles Civic Center remains closed.

The city says these closures will remain in place until they receive further guidance from the appropriate state-level officials once the state begins to move into Phase 3 reopening.
