Besides Tropical Storm Lee, LSU fans headed home Sunday from the Texas football game are also fighting detours on Interstate 20 because of wildfires near the highway.
I-20 in Texas from exit 599 to exit 604 is closed to traffic because of wildfires in the area, said April Saginor, a spokeswoman for the Texas Forest Service.
The closure is in Harrison County, which is near the Louisiana border, Saginor said.
Those traveling home from the LSU-Oregon game in Arlington, Texas, can take the following detours:
• Eastbound traffic can take the exit 599 loop to Highway 81.
• Westbound traffic can exit at 604 to FM 450.
