Unusually heavy traffic on Wednesday morning
BATON ROUGE - On Wednesday morning, heavy rains and wind led to a series of traffic delays.
With more vehicles on the roads due to the city's recent Phase 2 reopening and streets made slick with rain, an unusual amount of crashes and weather-related congestion occurred.
Downed power lines shut down I-10 West near Henderson for hours Wednesday morning. State police announced it was reopened after crews cleared the lines shortly before 1 o'clock.
An early morning wreck on I-10 East towards Ascension just past Highland Road caused heavy delays in addition to a multiple-vehicle crash on Essen Lane.
I-12 was also backed up with heavy traffic in the Denham Springs area due to rain.
