ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

Both directions of I-10 were closed for a few hours Friday night in Ascension Parish. 

Louisiana State Police closed the east and westbound lanes of I-10 between milepost 175 near Gonzales and milepost 173 in Prairieville. 

The closure was set to start some time between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. Troopers said it would last for about 2 hours. The interstate was back open by 1 a.m. Saturday. 

Troopers were closing the interstate to allow Entergy to make some repairs concerning power outages after recent storms. 

Traffic heading westbound was detoured at the milepost 177 exit onto LA 30 in Gonzales, while traffic heading eastbound was directed off at the milepost 173 exit onto LA 73 in Prairieville. 

Drivers were urged to drive down either LA 30 or LA 73 to Airline Hwy (US 61) as a detour around the closure.
