Interstate 10 eastbound between Perkins Road and Dalrymple Drive is now open after a tree limb fell on a car Wednesday afternoon. Traffic is heavily congested and backed up on I-10 eastbound to Grosse Tete.
Department of Transportation and Development cleanup crews are on the scene working to remove debris from the roadways, said Lauren Lee, a DOTD spokeswoman.
The limb fell onto an eastbound vehicle at 4:06 p.m., Lee said, and both right lanes are blocked because of debris in the roadways.
No injuries were reported from the incident, said Cpl. Tommy Stubbs, a Baton Rouge Police Department spokesman.
