If you are planning a trip from Sulphur to anywhere south of Lake Charles today ...You might want to give yourself some extra time.

The 210 exit  ramp for  I-10 East will be closed today until around noon. This means I-10 is the only way to get into Lake Charles from the east. This could cause congestion on I-10. It will mean a trip through Lake Charles on surface streets or a trip through Lake Charles on I-10 and then a cruise on I-210 to get to South Lake Charles.
