Road in Covington closed due to mudslide conditions


Mudslide conditions near Devou Park in Covington have caused a wall to collapse.

The 20-foot-high retention wall crumbled on to North Park Road, causing rushing water to flow down the street.

Crews attempted to work overnight but consistent rains stopped them.

Park Road is shut down just off Western Road until Montague, behind Willie's Sports Bar.

Authorities suggest taking Western Road and turning right onto Lewis, which turns into Montague.
