NEW: The Twin Spans have been reopened in both directions along with I-10 over the Bonnet Carre Spillway. Also, I-55 NB and SB from Laplace to Hammond is now open.

That's down from more than 20 over the past two days.

Those still closed are Interstate 49 near Alexandria, Interstate 55 between Hammond and LaPlace, and Louisiana Highway 1 south of White Castle.

La. 1 is closed between Frank Noel Road and Laurel Ridge Road. I-49 is closed between U.S. 71 and exit 94, the River Road and Rapides Station Road exit.

I-55 is closed between Interstate 10 and Exit 26, to Louisiana Highway 22. .
