I-110 reopened, all lanes moving smoothly

Updated at 5:40 p.m. — All lanes are now open on Interstate 110 South at North 22nd Street. There is no congestion at this time, according to the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development.

Daymeon Bradford, 36, 3030 Derry Road of Houston, was cited for careless operation after losing control of his flatbed truck hauling wooden pallets Monday morning on Interstate-110 at North 22nd Street, Baton Rouge police announced.

Bradford’s truck flipped over in a curve, losing his load, causing both directions of I-110 to be closed to traffic for several hours and damaging an estimated eight other vehicles which were struck by flying debris, according to an email from Lt. Don Kelly of the Baton Rouge Police Department.

Bradford, who was hauling for Fasttrac Transportation of Houston, was taken by EMS to the Baton Rouge General Mid-City for treatment of minor injuries and was expected to be released. No one else was hurt, Kelly said.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announced on Twitter at 12:39 p.m. that the northbound lanes on Interstate 110 are now open at Scenic Highway.

But soundbound lanes were still closed at North 22nd Street and congestion had reached Mohican, DOTD said.
