Ice close roads

As a wintery mix of precipitation moved across Louisiana this morning roads iced over and authorities closed them.

Closures included the Causeway across Lake Pontchartrain, I-55 in Manchac, I-10  at Gonzales, I-12 in Denham Springs, and both I-12 and I-10 in Baton Rouge.

Crews have since reopened the Causeway, I-55  and I-12 in Denham Springs.

State Police urge drivers to stay off the roads if they can.

"The Louisiana State Police urges motorists to keep abreast of the latest weather and travel conditions before deciding whether a trip is necessary," Sgt. James Anderson said in a news release.  "As conditions change, motorists are reminded to drive responsibly and be prepared for uncertain driving conditions."
