Both directions of the I-10 twin spans between Slidell and New Orleans have been reopened, according to a Department of Transportation and Development spokeswoman. The road has been closed due to ice since Tuesday.

Earlier Thursday morning, State Police opened the east bound lanes of the bridge and the west bound lanes “were being evaluated,” Marchand said.

Across the New Orleans metro area, only two major road closures remain: the Causeway is closed in both directions, as is Interstate 55 from Laplace to milepost 23, near Ponchatoula.

Causeway officials have said they hope to have both spans opened by noon.
