BATON ROUGE, La. (WGNO) – Late Wednesday night, Governor Edwards announced the closure of a large section of Interstate 10.

I-10 eastbound is closed at the Texas/Louisiana state line, and I-10 westbound is closed west of the Atchafalaya Basin.

The Governor says to detour the closure and avoid undrivable conditions, motorists should use U.S 61, I-55, and I-59, and travel north to connect with I-20.

Before traveling, motorists are encouraged to check www.511la.org or dial 511 from their mobile phone for the latest on roadway conditions and incidents. Out-of-state travelers can access the system by calling 1-888-ROAD-511 (1-888-762-3511).
