Southern University reports that E. C. Harrison Drive, near Jesse Stone Avenue, has been closed to traffic for a week because of road damage.

Officials are still trying to determine the cause of the damage, but say it is possibly caused by a deteriorated culvert under the street along with flowing water from the Mississippi River and an area in Scotlandville.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and State Department of Facility, Planning and Control, and other officials are trying to determine the cost and time it will take to fix the road, as well as possible funding sources for the repairs.
