CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) -

Hooper Road between Lovett and Tanglewood in East Baton Rouge Parish remained closed Friday morning due to a collapsed box culvert under the road. 

The road is completely shut down in both directions until crews finish making the necessary repairts. Drivers can use Joor Road and LA 410 to LA64 as detours during the closure.

One hour before the box culvert collapsed, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) released an emergency lane closure alert:

LA 408 Hooper Road between Carmel Drive and Tanglewood Drive will be closed to one lane of traffic with flaggers starting immediately and moving to a complete shutdown of both lanes later today, November 7, 2013, with detours at LA Joor Road and LA 410 (Blackwater Road) to LA 64.

This is an EMERGENCY CLOSURE for crews to repair a box culvert with road erosion. Flaggers will guide traffic through until the complete shutdown starts.
