JACKSON, MISS. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) would like to update motorists on a previously scheduled lane closure on Highway 45 in Lee County.
The previously scheduled lane closure for today has been postponed due to weather conditions.
MDOT will update motorists on the new date as information becomes available.
The barrier will be installed along a 3.5 mile stretch of Highway 45 from the Eason Boulevard interchange to the Verona exit.
There will be subsequent closures of the inside lanes from Eason Boulevard to Main Street and then to McCullough Boulevard as each section’s grade work is completed.
This is the first section of a larger 20 mile cable barrier project that was awarded to Simmons Erosion Control of Lake, MS at the cost of $3,439,494.29.
