BATON ROUGE - The Corps of Engineers could close the Morganza Spillway completely by next week.
Corps spokesperson Rachel Rodi said two more bays were closed today, leaving only five currently open.
She said because river levels keep falling they plan to close one a day until they're all closed, which could be by Sunday.
Rodi didn't have an estimate of how long it would take for flooding in the Atchafalaya Basin to go down once the spillway was completely closed.
