TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Tupelo Water and Light officials say a section of West Jackson Street is closed.

Director Johnny Timmons says a broken water main needs to be repaired at the intersection of Lumpkin Avenue.

He says the repairs may keep the roadway closed into the evening.

Motorists must take a detour, going west by turning right on Lumpkin Avenue, left onto Lambard and left onto Vassar, which will intersect with West Jackson.
