All lanes open on I-10 westbound near La. 30 after being closed earlier because of vehicle fire

All lanes are open on Interstate 10 westbound at La. 30 after being shut down earlier because a vehicle fire involving an 18-wheeler, the state Department of Transportation and Development reported through Twitter.

Traffic congestion has developed until La. 22 in Sorrento, the DOTD tweeted.

In an earlier incident congestion remains heavy from the I-10/12 merge to the Mississippi River Bridge because of delays associated with an earlier stalled tractor trailor that has since been moved. All lanes are open on the new bridge, however, traffic congestion remains very heavy, the DOTD reported through Twitter.

Expect delays in these areas.
