Storm debris still lingers, forces lane closures
BATON ROUGE- Expect traffic delays on Florida Boulevard between Sherwood Forest Blvd. and Little John Drive due to closures related to last night's bad weather.
There are downed power lines and roof debris, so the outside, eastbound lane is closed. The service road on the south side of Florida Blvd. is also closed in both directions in this same area.
These closures will remain in effect until further notice until the power lines can be re-established and the debris can be removed from the roadway.
Watch WBRZ News 2 at FIVE and SIX for live reports on the damage and clean up.
