NEW THIS MORNING: Westbound I-10 Closed At I-49
Trooper Brooks David from Louisiana State Police reports I-10 is closed Westbound starting at I-49. Traffic is being diverted north on I-49 to Opelousas and then west on Hwy 190. The interstate reopens at U.S. 165 in the Iowa area.
Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes as smaller towns are working hard to deal with the influx of traffic in the area.
