SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Lee County Road Department is set to begin the repair the road and land that has been depleting over the last week.
Road Manager Tim Allred said that they have hired a contractor to fix the issue starting on Thursday.
Allred said that the city examined the area and determined they do not have the ability or equipment to fix it, so they are bringing in the contractor.
"I know it's bad because the school buses are not allowed to come back here no more,” said William Felks who lives next to the landslide. “But as you can see there is a big crack on the middle of it."
Allred said that a culvert separated from the road which caused the landslide, and that the weather hasn’t helped.
Allred stated that the contractor could have completely fixed the road by Monday.
