CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) - Drivers may be stuck in traffic for some time as crews make emergency repairs to an interstate overpass.

According to the Greenwood Police Department, a joint broke in an overpass on I-20 East at mile marker 6. This is near the TA Travel Center in Greenwood one exit east of Exit 5.

Repairs cannot be completed until the bridge is lifted. Equipment is en route from Baton Rouge.

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says there will be alternating lane closures in the area until the bridge can be repaired. They estimate that will take two days, weather permitting.

Drivers should be prepared for delays and plan their route accordingly.
