New library construction issues cause massive downtown closures

Businesses closed and streets were blocked off last night due to “settlement issues” at the new downtown library.

According to The Advocate, architects and contractors stopped working late Wednesday afternoon and Baton Rouge Police blocked off the surrounding areas around 5p.m. Some surrounding businesses are still closed today, please check before heading downtown.

Architects and contractors will be doing a thorough investigation Thursday morning.
