Trooper Thomas Gossen joined News15 Today to talk about road conditions across the state.  A large majority of roads across Louisiana remain impassable due to current winter weather. Weather conditions and extremely low temperatures have not allowed for any defrosting of our roadways. Unnecessary travel is highly discouraged.
