UPDATE: Interstate 10 westbound is now open at the base of the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge. Traffic is now being allowed through, after the highway was closed most of the day following a crash at Whiskey Bay.
Traffic is still bumper-to-bumper on U.S. 190 after motorists were diverted from Interstate-10 West.
A tractor-trailer rig overturned early this morning, forcing the closure of the Interstate.
Here's video from our viewer, Connie Castille, of the back-up on 190:
Westbound traffic is still being diverted at Lobdell.
State Police say that the 18-wheeler was hauling hazardous materials. Crews are currently on scene.
I-10 East at I-49 was closed temporarily. The roadway is now open and traffic is no longer being diverted to I-49 North.
Motorists are advised to take an alternate route.
