Louisiana State Police Troopers are currently on the scene of a two-vehicle crash near Mile Marker 123 westbound (between Whiskey Bay and Butte La Rose) involving a commercial vehicle hauling hazardous materials.

At around 11:45 am Troopers responded to the crash. They say that at this time, there is no leak and no danger to the public.

All lanes are now open, but congestion remains 15 miles. Troopers initially said both lanes might be temporarily closed in order to get wreckers in place.

Troopers say that drivers should expect delays and avoid the area if possible. For lane road conditions and road closures visit 511la.org or the 511la app.
