Interstate 10 near Breaux Bridge was shut down this morning after an 18-wheeler crashed into concrete construction barriers, state police say.

The eastbound side of I-10 near miles post 111, east of Breaux Bridge, is down to one lane after the truck crashed, state police say.

DOTD has sent conflicting statements about whether all lanes are open, but DOTD's cameras show crews still working to remove the truck at 11 a.m. Sunday, and slowed traffic in both directions on the Interstate.

Here's a picture from DOTD's own cameras:

No one was injured and the truck was empty, state police say.
