Lanes open from separate traffic incidents, but congestion heavy on Interstate

All lanes are open resulting from separate traffic incidents on Interstate 10 in both directions, but congestion remains heavy along the interstate through Baton Rouge, traffic authorities report.

An earlier accident disrupted the I-10 eastbound lanes before the I-10, 1-110. While all eastbound lanes are open, traffic remains congested to La. 1, the state Department of Transportation reported.

In a separate incident, all westbound lanes have reopened following a disabled vehicle on the new Mississippi River Bridge, however, traffic congestion stretches to Essen Lane and the I-10/I-12 split, the DOTD reported.
