Vehicle fire shuts down I-10 eastbound at Acadian

I-10 eastbound at the Acadian Thruway exit now has one lane open. That’s after it was shut down completely after a truck caught on fire.

No injuries were reported.

Add this closure to Friday afternoon traffic in Baton Rouge and it’s been a nightmare for drivers.

Some have said they’ve been sitting for hours. All drivers eastbound must get off the interstate. There are numerous alternate routes but expect heavy backups everywhere.

You can get back on I-10 eastbound at the Acadian on ramp.
