Hwy 1 north of Hwy 538 closed due to 18 wheeler rollover

Posted: Updated:
CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A stretch of Highway 71 just north of Highway 538 is expected to be closed for the next three hours due to an overturned 18-wheeler.

According to the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office, all traffic headed north on Highway 71 will be diverted at Highway 538 to Highway 1 and all traffic headed south on Highway 71 will be diverted at Highway 173 to Hwy 1.

It's not known if that wreck is weather related, but road conditions are deteriorating in other parts of the ArkLaTex due to sleet and freezing rain. Arkansas State Police confirms reports of numerous vehicles sliding off I-30 between Texarkana and Hope, AR.

Several accidents are being worked in Lafayette and Nevada counties. Brief sleet showers apparently causing slick roads and bridges.

Use extreme caution if you're traveling in SW Arkansas, SE Oklahoma or NE Texas.
