NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Two right lanes were blocked on Interstate 10 westbound past the Louisa exit due to an accident.

The crash happened around 6 a.m. on Thursday. People who normally take the Highrise Bridge should expect heavy delays.

Congestion was to Morrison Rd. shortly after 6:15 a.m., but it appears the accident has been moved to the shoulder of the road.

There is no word on injuries or the cause of the accident.
