Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced that all state interstates are open to traffic.

Cleanup crews completed removing debris from I-10 and I-55 in the Baton Rouge and Hammond areas, according to DOTD.

“DOTD crews have worked around the clock to get all of Louisiana’s interstates reopened, and I’m extremely grateful to them for their tireless work,” said DOTD Secretary Shawn D. Wilson, Ph.D. “But we still urge motorists to keep the interstates clear for emergency responders, as undue traveling could potentially burden emergency services. Check with your parish before returning because essentials like food, water and gas can be hard to come by and local, state and federal responders have already begun the recovery process. Let’s all work together to recover from this storm.”
