The Friday fiasco started; Track traffic live here
SATSUMA - The Friday evening commute got off to a very slow start across the region.
Shortly after 3 p.m., eastbound I-12 closed due to a wreck near La. 441. Traffic was slow between Walker and Holden. A state traffic camera showed traffic stopped at Satsuma.
In the city of Baton Rouge, east and westbound I-10 also slowed due to various wrecks but was not closed. The heaviest delays were seen in both directions from the Mississippi River to the I-10/12 split.
A similar situation developed in Ascension where eastbound traffic slowed significantly from the EBR/Ascension parish line to Gonzales.
