Due to flooding from the Sabine River, I-10 at the Louisiana/Texas state line is expected to remain closed for at least a of couple days. Sgt. James Anderson with State Police encourages motorists to plan an alternate route if headed to The Lone Star State.

"Westbound traffic is being detoured north onto I-49 in Lafayette, U.S. 165 near Iowa, and U.S. 171 in Lake Charles then west onto U.S. 190 into Texas," said Anderson."
Anderson says you don't have to travel all the way to I-20, as US 190 into Texas crosses in northern Beauregard Parish. He says traffic has been moderate, but it's flowing well.
"We have higher than normal commercial truck traffic, but it's been a good ride thus far," said Anderson.
