I-10 reopens following spill, congestion remains
BATON ROUGE - I-10 East has reopened just before College Dr. after a black liquid spilled on the roadway, blocking three lanes for over an hour and a half.
Traffic officials said congestion from the incident is still clogging traffic into the city-parish. At 11:30 a.m. delays stretched back to one mile before LA 415 to the I-10 / I-110 merge.
The blockage began around 8:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. Officials have not said what the liquid was or how it got there at this time, but the College Dr. exit ramp and Acadian Thruway entrance ramp were also closed. All lanes and ramps reopened just before 10:00 a.m.
Hazmat assisted in the clean-up, using sand to get rid of the substance.
