Portions of I-10 in Louisiana close ahead of Hurricane Laura

Hurricane Laura zeroes in on Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) has closed a portion of Interstate 10 due to the imminent arrival of Hurricane Laura.

The eastbound lane of I-10 is closed at the Texas/Louisiana state line, and I-10 westbound is closed west of the Atchafalaya Basin.

To detour the closure and avoid undrivable conditions, motorists should use U.S. Highway 61, Interstate 55 and Interstate 59 and travel north to connect with Interstate 20, according to DOTD.

Hurricane Laura is closing in on the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast and is expected to bring extreme winds and a “catastrophic” storm surge of possibly 20 feet of water starting Wednesday night, according to the National Hurricane Center.
