WALKER, La. (WAFB) - Officials with the Department of Transporation Development (DOTD) have reopened Cane Market Road as of Thursday, Aug. 8.

An elderly couple was sent to the hospital after a portion of the road collapsed just west of the Spring Lake subdivision in Walker. DOTD says a collapsed culvert caused a complete closure.

Crews have been working all week long to get the road reopened. On Thursday, asphalt was laid and yellow striping was being applied before the road reopened around 3 p.m.
