State Police say I-10 Westbound at milepost 4 near the Texas state line is closed due to flooding.

Motorists on the Texas side of the Sabine River who are unable to proceed west are being escorted the opposite direction by troopers, back into Louisiana. If you're headed that way, LSP says it's best to travel north via I-49 and US 171 in Lake Charles.

The road closure is between Exit 7 (LA 3063, West Street) and Exit 4 (US 90, Toomey Road) west of Vinton.

The recommended alternate route for large commercial vehicles is I-49 north to I-20 west. Smaller vehicles can use other routes north to I-20 west.

However, travel to southeast Texas is strongly discouraged at this time due to flooding.
