Interstate 10 West is closed near Vinton while an 18-wheeler is removed from the road, troopers say.

Louisiana State Police will be assisting a wrecker service with a vehicle (18-wheeler) recovery on I-10 west. Due to the extent of the work, both lanes of I-10 west will be closed.

All westbound traffic is being diverted onto LA 3063 (Vinton) to US 90 west. Motorists can take LA 109 (south) and re-enter I-10 west.

There is no estimated time of when the westbound lanes of travel will be reopened.
