Baton Rouge, LA (NBC33) — You can once again walk and bike along the Mississippi River Levee in downtown Baton Rouge, kind of.
For now, the only part where you can do this is the portion north of the Belle of Baton Rouge. That section was reopened this morning. The remaining part of the levee between the Belle of Baton Rouge and L.S.U. will reopen sometime next week according to Jim Ferguson of the Department of Public Works. The levee originally closed back on May 13th because of high flood waters.
