ORIGINAL STORY: Interstate 12 remains completely closed this morning. That as crews continue to try to get an 18-wheeler that flipped over.
I-12 west is closed at Juban - I-12 East is closed at O'Neal. State Police hope to open the eastbound side soon - but westbound could be closed for several more hours.
As a result, lots of the side streets from Walker to Denham Springs are also backed up.
