FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EMERGENCY ROAD CLOSURE
WEST METAIRIE AVENUE AT ZINNIA STREET
JEFFERSON, LA - There is an emergency road closure of westbound West Metairie Ave. at Zinnia St. due to a major sinkhole. The Department of Drainage believes the sink hole is related to an existing subsurface 48” outfall pipe that crosses West Metairie Ave. from Zinnia St. to the West Metairie Ave. canal.
Due to the severity of the damage to the existing roadway, it may take several days to restore the roadway. Motorists should detour from Zinnia St. to Grammar St. and back to westbound West Metairie Ave. Pending conditions, the detour route may be revised.
For more information, please contact the Jefferson Parish Traffic Division at 504-736-6530.
