BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Louisiana State Police issued an advisory urging drivers to avoid Greenwell Springs Road near North Sherwood Forest Drive for part of Tuesday morning.

The road was closed because of a downed utility pole in front of the Greenwell Springs Road Library. Troopers added the utility pole fell because of a crash.

Both westbound lanes and one eastbound lane of Greenwell Springs Road were reopened just before 8 a.m. The other eastbound lane was cleared around 9:30 a.m.

Entergy was called to the scene to repair the pole.

KinderCare Learning Center on Greenwell Springs Road announced it is delaying opening until noon. Officials did not state whether that has changed since the road reopened.
