Rain washes away Better Block BR event
BATON ROUGE - The Better Block BR demonstration planned for Sunday has been canceled due to bad weather.
The rain washed away the bike paths, filled the greens spaces with puddles and the outdoor event is not possible with more rain forecasted throughout the day, according to a news release.
Saturday city leaders temporarily shrunk a major Baton Rouge road to show off some changes they believe can help increase business and recreational traffic in the city.
The Better Block BR demonstration altered Government Street to two lanes with a center turn lane on Saturday. It showed people what the area might look like with landscape buffered streets and more area for people to walk, ride their bikes and sample local businesses.
