I-10 westbound now closed at Louisana-Texas border

VINTON, LA (KPLC) - I-10 westbound is closed at the Louisiana-Texas border. Eastbound remains open.

The closure is due to flooding on the Sabine River.

Earlier, TXDOT announced that I-10 motorists should be looking at alternate routes into Louisiana.
