News

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) said drivers should expect a temporary lane closure on I-55 on Wednesday, July 1.

Crews will close the outside (right) lane of the I-55 northbound bridge over the I-220 northbound ramp in Madison County. The closure will happen between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

According to MDOT, a temporary barrier wall was anchored to the bridge deck to protect the traveling public and construction workers when the existing bridge was being widened. They said the closure is necessary to place epoxy into the anchor holes as part of the recently completed I-55 expansion project.

Road signs will be in place for drivers.

MDOT also announced that the center and outside (right) lane of the I-55 northbound bridge over the I-220 northbound ramp in Madison County will close at 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 2, until 2:00 a.m. on Friday, July 3.

Officials said the closure is necessary to place epoxy into the bridge deck anchor holes as part of the recently completed I-55 expansion project.
