DOTD says traffic on the Interstate 10 was backed up from the I-110 split to the Acadian Thruway exit after an 18-wheeler overturned.

The truck was carrying cable wire when it flipped over in a one-vehicle accident at around 9 a.m., said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman.

DOTD recommended US-190 West as an alternate route.
