BATON ROUGE - Emergency repairs are expected to begin this weekend on a collapsed stretch road near the heart of Southern University's campus.

Gov. Bobby Jindal ordered the repairs since the school was in limbo, trying to secure funding for emergency repairs after the washout a few weeks ago.  The street is heavily traveled and connects dorms with the rest of campus.

The project will cost up to $300,000, with all materials provided by the state highway agency.  Work could be finished by the time school starts in August.

There is a detour posted around the road closure.
