LA DOTD: I-220, I-49, most of I-20 back open

Local

CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Interstates in Northwest Louisiana shut down overnight by hazardous conditions brought on by heavy snow are beginning to reopen, according to the Louisiana Department of Transportation.

That includes I-220, which is back open in both directions, as well as all lanes of I-49 between I-220 and Mira Myrtis Road and I-49 South between I-20 and LA 526.

I-20 West remains closed at US 371 (Dixie Inn) due to an accident, however. Traffic is being diverted onto US 371 to US 80 and LA DOTD says congestion remains approximately 2 miles in length.

The LA 3 overpass over the Union Pacific railroad tracks just north of the intersection of LA 162 and LA 3 in Benton is also back open, along with the Grand Ecore Bridge over the Red River in Natchitoches Parish.
