1-10 Closed at Louisiana/Texas Line From Flooding

blurred signsHurricane Harvey has caused massive damage to Houston, TX and surrounding cities. Many road closes going into and out of affected cities have been closed, and detours created.

18 Wheelers or Semi-Trucks

All westbound commercial motor vehicle traffic (18-wheelers) traveling on I-10 should detour to I-49 north in Lafayette. At this time US 190 in Louisiana is open, but there are closures in Texas. Therefore, drivers should continue north and use I-20 as an alternate route into Texas instead of US 190. As some roads are still flooded and some receiving water, closures help alleviate semi-truck accidents and keep citizens safe.

Automobiles & Cars

Personal vehicles can continue westbound on I-10 towards destinations in Louisiana, but all others are encouraged to use I-49 as a detour due to the fact that I-10 westbound near the Texas border is currently closed. These closures will keep citizens safe and reduce car & auto accidents due to unsafe road conditions.

Vehicles traveling westbound on I-12 further east in Louisiana should use I-55 north in Hammond as a detour. I-10 westbound traffic closer to Lake Charles will be diverted off of I-10 onto either US 165 north to I-49, or US 171 north to I-20. Please travel carefully, and avoid the areas if possible. For up to date roadway info, please utilize www.511la.org, or dial *LSP on your phone to report hazardous situations while driving.
