I-10 east near Highland Rd to close Thursday night for post-accident clean up of wrecked 18-wheeler
BATON ROUGE - Clean up efforts from an early morning accident on I-10 eastbound between the Highland Road and Prairieville exit, just before the Bluff Road overpass, may cause traffic delays on Thursday night.
Before 5 a.m., a tractor-trailer ran off the highway and into the tree line. The 18-wheeler remains at the scene of the accident, and Louisiana State Police say it will not be removed until Thursday night.
Officials explain they'll have to close that part of the interstate to ensure the safe removal of the tractor trailer, and they'd rather do this in the evening.
An eastbound lane closure will take place on I-10, from Highland Rd. to LA 73 beginning at 10:00 PM on Thursday, December 12, 2019 and ending at 5:00 AM on Friday, December 13, 2019.
This closure is necessary for the removal of an 18-wheeler from the side if I-10 EB.
I-10 EB traffic will be detoured to Highland Rd, North to Airline Highway, East to LA 73, then south to I-10 EB.
