BATON ROUGE - As severe weather passes over Baton Rouge, drivers traveling on the interstates can expect to have serious traffic delays.

DOTD officials say a stalled tractor trailer blocked the left lane on I-10 west on the Mississippi River Bridge. Congestion from that incident backed up traffic to College Drive.

The right lane on I-12 West was blocked near Essen Lane due to a vehicle recovery. DOTD says all lanes are open on I-12 at that location, but congestion reached Airline Highway.
