WHO: The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT).
WHAT: Work is progressing on a bridge deck repair project on I-22/ Highway 78 in Union County. On Monday, July 18, the right lane of I-22/Highway 78 eastbound will be closed. There will be a wide load restriction placed on eastbound traffic. Wide loads must take an alternate route around the work zone. Wide load restrictions are already in place for I-22 westbound. The previously closed I-22 entrance ramp has been reopened.
Motorists should use caution as MDOT crews and contractors will be on site and are encouraged to buckle up and drive distraction free. Crews began repairs on May 12 and the project is expected to be complete in the fall.
WHERE: I-22 over the Little Tallahatchie River and over Carter and Central Avenues in New Albany, Union County.
WHEN: On Monday, July 18, the eastbound right lane of I-22 will be closed, resulting in a wide load restriction.
