TxDOT announced that I-10 is closed as of Tuesday morning due to flooding. For those traveling to Louisiana, I-20 is now the route to take.

Earlier TxDOT in Beaumont had stated that TxDOT was expected to close I-10 between Texas and Louisiana around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, March 15. Many state highways, farm roads, as well as some county roads are closed in Southeast Texas due to flooding or washout. Any interstate travel between Texas and Louisiana should utilize I-20 according to the state transportation agency. Spring Break travel for some will be affected.

On Monday, TxDOT issued a warning that I-10 closure was being considered. “Flooding from excessive rainfall along the Texas-Louisiana state line has resulted in the states of Texas and Louisiana considering closure of Interstate 10 near the state line as early as Tuesday morning. If that becomes necessary, it will significantly impact east-west traffic in that area and beyond the region.”
