DOTD installs enhanced equipment at sinkhole

Updated:

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - State officials have installed enhanced monitoring equipment along Louisiana 70, near the Assumption Parish sinkhole.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the improvements will provide broader observation and greater accuracy in measuring the area for movement and subsidence.

DOTD will be able to use data from the monitoring systems and alert responders via its Traffic Management Center in Baton Rouge to any significant movement or changes in the area near the site.
