Police reopen I-10 in Iberville Parish after hazmat clean-up forced hours-long closure
GROSSE TETE - Law enforcement in Iberville Parish closed I-10 Wednesday to remove an overturned tanker truck carrying hazardous materials.
The Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office said the truck was carrying acrylic acid and that it sprung a small leak after the crash around 4 a.m. near Grosse Tete.
Louisiana State Police said the eastbound side of the interstate was closed shortly after 11 a.m. so crews from outside the state could help clear the wreck. The eastbound side was closed off between I-49 and the crash scene until around 3:30 p.m..
All lanes are now open I-10 East at I-49. Congestion remains 2 miles.— Baton Rouge Traffic (@BR_Traffic) April 13, 2022
