High water is causing problems for some drivers in Bossier City.

The Police Department is monitoring city streets for rising water.  Barricades and high water signs have been placed at several locations in Bossier City that typically flood during periods of heavy rain.

Here's the latest from Bossier City officials:

Most roadways that were barricaded earlier today are now clear. Barricades remain in place on Hamilton Road under railroad overpass between Green Street and Cox Street also remains barricaded due to high water.
