I-10 WB Closed Due To Tanker Crash
Louisiana State Police Trooper Brooks David reports westbound I-10 is closed at the base of the basin bridge near Henderson. The crash which involves an overturned tanker truck is blocking all westbound travel lanes just as you exit the Atchafalaya Basin bridge. Injuries are reported at the scene. For drivers headed west toward Lafayette, traffic is currently being diverted to US 190.
Troop A on the east side of the Basin is closing I-10 westbound lanes to divert traffic to the official detour route through Opelousas on US 190. At this point, eastbound lanes of I-10 are open, but delays are expected.
We'll update this story with more information.
