CUMBERLAND, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Department of Transportation will close a highway in Webster County on Thursday.
The Mississippi Department of Transporation, MDOT, is working on a section of Highway 765 in front of East Webster High School.
"Well, it will help the drainage because the old pipe is rusted and it's you know not letting water flow as well and it's collapsing. So, dirt is collecting in there," said Glen Hood of MDOT.
The new pipe will be a plastic and won't rust as long as people don't burn leaves around the pipe.
