LIST: Road closures in the area on Thursday


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The rain is back in the viewing area and so are road closures.

There is already one road closure in East Baton Rouge Parish.

The East Baton Rouge City-Parish Department of Transportation & Drainage, Traffic Engineering Division has details below on one major road closure:

On Thursday, “Highland Road at Casa Colina Ct (between Pecue Lane and Interstate 10) will be closed. Closure will begin Thursday, May 20, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.  Closure of the road involves tree removal near the area. The road will NOT have thru traffic; homeowners will have full access.  Expect major delays.”

Local officials say Acadian Thruway was closed for a short period of time due to high water. The pumps have since been turned on and the water has receded. The streets are open once again in this area.
