State Police reopened eastbound Interstate 12 at Exit 22 in Livingston after closing eastbound traffic for more than an hour.
During the closure, traffic had been routed to La. 63 and detoured to U.S 190, a State Police advisory said.
The state Department of Transportation and Development reported on Twitter the closure resulted from a "vehicle recovery."
Congestion has stretched past S. Satsuma, the DOTD reported.
