GREEENSBURG - Flood-damaged Highway 10 in St. Helena reopened Monday.

Westbound lanes reopened between Greensburg and the East Feliciana Parish line, DOTD said. Parts of the travel lane and shoulder washed out on August 12, 2016, when the Baton Rouge area experienced record flooding.

It was along this stretch of newly-opened highway where a tanker truck infamously was pulled in the rapids. It was here, too, where a person died when their pickup truck was swept away.
