Lake Charles, La. -- Yesterday we reported that a part of the westbound lane of the 300 block of Division Street was temporarily closed due to safety concerns.

On Monday August 8, the 300 Block of Division Street, between Ryan and Bilbo Streets, will be closed to thru traffic. According to Public Works Director Mister Edwards, a crew found that an underground storm drain running along the westbound lane of Division Street failed, causing a gaping hole in the middle of the lane.

City officials are requesting that citizens are patient as the road is repaired and restored to its "structural integrity."
