Bridge back open, but traffic backed up
BATON ROUGE - Your morning commute isn't off to a good start this week, with traffic backed-up to the I-10/I-12 split following an accident on the new Mississippi River Bridge.
The wreck happened around 6:30 a.m. Monday morning. Hazmat was called to the scene to clean-up diesel leaking from an 18-wheeler. Two lanes are closed while authorities deal with the accident.
The accident was cleared by 8:45 a.m., but traffic continues to crawl at the time of this post.
No word on any injuries.
