BATON ROUGE - Authorities reopened I-10 West this evening after a wreck on the Mississippi River Bridge closed it for more than an hour.

The Department of Transportation and Development said several vehicles were involved, including multiple tractor trailers. 

Traffic was diverted north at the I-10 and I-110 split and across the river on U. S. 190.

Congestion backed up past Bluebonnet on I-10 West and Essen on I-12 West before the closure ended.
