***UPDATE: All lanes are now open***

Baton Rouge
- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that both northbound lanes of I-110 near Capitol Access Rd. are closed due to flash flooding that has left this section of the interstate impassable.

The pump station near Memorial Stadium that moves water in this area is not functioning due to a loss of power. Crews are on site working to resolve the issues and will reopen the roadway when the water has receded.

During unfavorable weather conditions, motorists should adhere to the following safety tips:

• Do not drive unless you must.
• Avoid driving into standing or running water.
• Avoid driving while distracted.
• Avoid using cruise control when visibility is low or road surfaces are wet.
• Always allow for extra driving time.
• Make sure there is plenty of room between vehicles.
• Have your headlights on when using windshield wipers
• Never drive through areas with downed power lines or utility poles
