BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Most major roadways,
like I-10 and I-12, are back open after days of winter weather, while other roads and
bridges remain closed due to ice.
Baton Rouge Department of Public Works is trying to get things back to normal.
of the other closures that we had 24 hours ago are open," said David Guillory,
director of DPW. "We are starting to move barricades. We're dealing with
sheriff and police departments on which roads are safe to travel. Lots of ice
starting to melt out of travel lanes. Many drivers will probably still see ice
on edges of roads. We still ask that drivers are careful and watch their speeds
throughout the day."
The ice has
also melted in Gonzales, allowing vehicles back on I-10 in Ascension Parish.
