    Default I-10 Closed through Louisiana

    I-10 between Lafayette and Baton Rouge is closed until approximately December 4th. Some kind of natural gas fire near the interstate. Just a heads up to travelers.

    Default yipes

    55 miles of a major cross country interstate closed going into a holiday weekend, that sounds pretty much like a worst case situation.

    It looks like US-190 is the only reasonable detour, is that what you'd recommend?

    Default Definitely Take Highway 190

    Actually I avoid that section of I-10 whenever possible and take 190. Most of that stretch of I-10 is a giant bridge over the Atchafalaya River basin and can get very backed up from even minor accidents due to the lack of exits.

    Default Um- 190 looks horrible

    The Dead Pelican is featuring a picture of 190 as it's opening picture right now. Here's the link to the article. There's not really another option than 190. So I suggest trying to take I-20 through Louisiana for the forseeable future or until they get this fire under control.
