Jones County, MS — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin a bridge improvement project on U.S. Highway 11 between Interstate 59 (Exit 93) and Don Curt Boulevard in Laurel.
Work is Thursday, September 10, and will include widening the bridge and making improvements to the existing structure. There will be a two week period in which the bridge will be closed beginning Monday, September 21. An official detour route will be posted along I-59 between Exit 93 (Highway 11) and Exit 95C (Beacon Street).
“We want to make sure the traveling public is aware of the closure taking place on September 21,” said Transportation Commissioner Tom King. “MDOT advises that motorists slow down, be alert for our workers and utilize the posted detour routes throughout this project.”
The $595,000 project was awarded to Key LLC.
