Busted catch basin called into 311 last month, still no repair date
BATON ROUGE - A sewer drain at the corner of Louise Street and Highland Road has been broken for at least a month.
It was called into 311 on Aug. 26, 2021 and again on Sept. 20. The person who called it in reported a large truck drove over the lid of the catch basin, breaking it.
The city-parish said on Monday that the service request is in progress, but there was no repair date provided. A barricade was placed there a while ago, but it's since been broken and pushed into the catch basin.
On Tuesday, a day after WBRZ aired its 2 On Your Side report, a makeshift barrier made off traffic cones was erected to block off the hole.
