BATON ROUGE- If you use the I-10 Mississippi River Bridge and thought the traffic has only been getting worse, you are correct.

Transportation leaders said Monday, traffic snarled at a record pace in July: twice as many. They are trying to figure out what caused the issues.

"You can't really predict or control stalled vehicles or weather or debris. So this may just be an anomaly," said DOTD spokesman Rodney Mallet.

"We're going to continue to monitor the data to see if there is a trend."

Eastbound lanes of the bridge slowed Monday because sewer by-product leaked a few miles east.
