Louisiana State Police have previously released a statement in March.

“Driving the wrong way, passing on the shoulder, and crossing the median due to traffic congestion are illegal and potentially dangerous driving behaviors,” said Sgt. James Anderson, with State Police. “Drivers who choose to break the law risk being ticketed by law enforcement. While this was taking place today, our efforts were focused on reopening the I-210 Bridge as quickly as possible.”

Motorists should expect delays at this time.
