Collapse closes Hooper Road in EBR
BATON ROUGE - Traffic officials closed Hooper Road between Carmel Drive and Tanglewood Drive Thursday for emergency road work.
The Department of Transportation and Development said a collapsed culvert under the road forced them to shut the road down for emergency repairs. They said the road would remain shut down through the evening Sunday, Nov. 10.
There are two suggested detour routes:
- Joor Road and La. 410 (Blackwater Road) to La. 64
- Airline Highway to Greenwell Springs to La. 946, and back to La. 408.
They also asked drivers to keep an eye out for flaggers in the area directing traffic, and drive with caution.
