Your Best Online Sources For Louisiana Roadway Information
That's a screenshot from the Louisiana Department of Transportation's LA511.org website. Every one of those blue circle things indicates a major roadway or bridge that is closed because of ice. As you can see, I-10 from Houston to New Orleans is not where you want to be driving this morning.
La511.org is a great site for you get up to the minute roadway information for anywhere in the state. There is also an app for your smartphone called Way To Geaux. You can find it in Google Play and the App Store for Apple. It's a great piece of technology to have and keep on your phone.
For traffic issues around the Lafayette area the Lafayette Parish Communications website is a great source for real-time traffic conditions, however, this site doesn't have a listing of where there are roads and bridges closed.
Driving is very treacherous even if you have a vehicle designed to drive on such nonsense. The temperature is expected to rise above the freezing mark by midday today. Things will thaw briefly before they freeze over again tonight.
State police worked numerous accidents on I-10 during the nighttime hours, mainly around bridges and overpasses. Those are the slickest spots. However, on surface and neighborhood streets those small bridges that cross ditches, coulees, and drainage canals treat winter weather just like the big bridges. They are very slick for the few feet that you have to traverse them.
