VINTON, La. (KPLC) - The inside lane of 1-10 west near milepost 5 (Vinton) is closed while crews try and clear the remnants of an 18-wheeler crash. The outside lane remains closed until further notice.

In a Facebook post, Louisiana State Police say they are assisting a wrecker service with a 18-wheeler recovery on I-10 west.

Police says due to the extent of the work, both lanes of I-10 west will be closed, and all westbound traffic is being diverted onto LA 3063 (Vinton) to US 90 west.

Motorists can take LA 109 (south) and re-enter I-10 west.
