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.
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.
