TRAFFIC ALERT: I-10 Travel to New Orleans Restricted
The Louisiana State Police issued a travel restriction for a portion of Interstate 10 Eastbound headed to New Orleans.
According to the post, the left-hand lane of I-10 Eastbound is closed as a result of an earlier crash that caused damage to that portion of the roadway.
The lane closure, located near milepost 218 on the Bonnet Carre Spillway Bridge, is just about a mile prior to the I-310 exit.
A normal detour would include Highway 61, but Louisiana State Police are advising AGAINST using that detour due to "ongoing recovery operations" in support of Hurricane Ida relief.
The post also notes that commercial traffic is being limited at this location and that trucks should detour at either I-12 in the Baton Rouge area, or at I-55 near LaPlace.

According to the post, there has been no expected date given for the lane to be reopened.
