Staff reports

Northbound and Southbound outside lanes on US 190 Business (River Road) starting from Third Street (State Capitol Drive) to North Street in Downtown Baton Rouge will be closed due to high water flood protection and prevention activities.

One lane will be closed at all times starting May 10, and continuing during the entire high water event.

Detour routes have been set up and wide loads will NOT be allowed.
