Traffic woes on I-10 West

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

UPDATE (8:15 PM): The Traffic Management Center reports all delays on I-10 West between Baton Rouge and Grosse Tete have cleared. 

UPDATE (6:50 PM): Expect heavy delays on I-10 West between LA-1 (Port Allen) and mile post 147 (before Grosse Tete) due to an accident. LSP Troop A says the accident is on the shoulder, but lanes may intermittently close for vehicle removal.

UPDATE (5:50 PM): Traffic is now flowing normally in all directions of I-10 and I-12.


Traffic remains heavily congested on I-10 West in Baton Rouge. Delays currently stretch from Essen Lane to the top of the Mississippi River Bridge.

Around Noon Sunday a stalled vehicle blocked one westbound lane of the bridge, triggering the congestion. The vehicle was moved, but the traffic never recovered.

Alternate routes to avoid the congested section of I-10 West include Perkins Rd., Highland Rd., or Burbank Dr. Government St. is also a viable option to get to Downtown Baton Rouge.

    Our Saturday weather was right on par with what we have been dealing with across central and south Alabama all week long... it was hot (temperatures made their way into the low/mid 90s), it was humid (heat index values went above 100° in many towns) and we saw some relief from the heat thanks to a few isolated areas of rain.
