This .2-mile stretch of the Henderson Levee Hwy/LA352 just south of Henderson has been restricted to one-lane travel by the state Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) since July 2017 after a portion of the southbound lane collapsed. A temporary traffic signal was installed by DOTD to control the flow of traffic but no steps have been taken to repair the levee or the collapsed section of roadway over the past three years.(Sally Angelle)
