BATON ROUGE - Both lanes of I-12 reopened just after midnight Tuesday morning.

Earlier, I-12 eastbound was opened for drivers headed from the Baton Rouge area toward St. Tammany Parish.  But, westbound lanes remained closed as officials worked to remove abandoned and flooded vehicles from lanes.

Westbound I-12 reopened around midnight.

Though, closures remained on I-10.
