Authorities have reopened Interstate 10 west near the I-10/110 split after earlier closing a portion of the interstate because of an overturned 18-wheeler, the state Department of Transportation and Development reported.

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 said.

Traffic congestion remains heavy from College Drive, the DOTD reported.
