Is it legal for a business to close their pedestrian right-of-way? 

Generally speaking, yes, it is legal for a business to close their pedestrian right-of-way, though every situation is different. If an accident such as a flat tire or wreck were to occur on a businesses pedestrian right-of-way, no action would be taken as far as a citation for trespassing, according to an Ascension Parish law enforcement official.
