College Drive to partially close this weekend
BATON ROUGE - Traffic officials in Baton Rouge reminded drivers that a portion of busy College Drive would close over the weekend for sewer work.
The Department of Public Works said both southbound lanes will close Saturday at 7 a.m. for repair work in front of Walmart near I-10. Traffic will be able to pass through the center lane of College Driver during the repairs.
Plans called for one of the southbound lanes to be reopened Saturday evening, but the other lane will stay closed until early next week.
The delay is so new asphalt can be put into place after the rain forecast for late Sunday and Monday.
