LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Crews will close a section of State Route 245 in Lee County beginning next week to work on a bridge.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation says the closure will begin on Tuesday, May 29.
The roadway will be closed in both directions between County Road 130 and County Road 54 during the replacement of the Tubbalubba Creek bridge.
A detour will be in place on Highway 45 throughout the project. Traffic will be rerouted at the Shannon exit on the north end of the project and the Okolona exit on the south end.
The replacement project is expected to be completed in the fall.
