All lanes on Interstate-10 westbound at mile post 127 (the Whiskey Bay Exit ) on the basin bridge are now open. However, congestion is reported as 7 miles long, according to the DOTD twitter site.

The interstate was closed due to an 18-wheeler truck fire.

No injuries were reported during the fire, which was contained to the truck on the interstate’s shoulder, said Trooper Stephen Hammons, a Louisiana State Police Troop I spokesman.
