Road conditions expected to improve
BATON ROUGE - The roads and bridges closed because of icy conditions are expected to open today as the temperatures rise above freezing and the roadways have had the time to thaw. State troopers say they do not know how long major roads will be closed, but they say the roads will remain closed until they are safe to travel on.
The Louisiana State Police maintains a list of the current road closures here. It will be updated as conditions warrant.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development also lists road and bridge closures here.
Both lists will be updated as ice melts on roadways and bridges.
