UPDATE: State Police say that all lanes of I-10 East are now open following a crash this morning. The crash occurred just past Louisiana Avenue and involved two 18-wheelers.

State Police say that those involved in the crash received minor injuries.

The roadway was closed for around two hours as emergency crews worked to remove the two vehicles from the roadway.
