Traffic on Interstate 10 East is backed up past the Scott exit as drivers anxiously await the opening of the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

The bridge remains closed this morning because of the ice that accumulated on the structure over the last 48 hours.  Drivers looking to head towards New Orleans should take US 90, which remains open.

According to Trooper Stephen Hammons with Louisiana State Police, I-10 is expected to reopen sometime later today, but no timetable has been set for officials to open the road.

Trooper Hammons provides more information about area highway closures in this interview.
