Wall Collapse in Devou Park Closes Road

A wall collapsed late Wednesday night and forced the closure of Devou Drive at both ends, at Western Avenue and east of Montague.

The wall had been a regular source of concern for city officials in recent years and was in the process of being redesigned.

On Thursday morning, city employees were on the scene awaiting an engineer to evaluate the situation.

No information was available on what specifically may have caused the collapse or how long the road will be closed.

This story will be updated when more information is available.

(Note: An earlier version of this article referred to the street by its previous name, North Park Drive. It is now officially Devou Drive.)
