Officials say a hazmat matter forces MDOT to shut down a stretch of highway in Stone County Wednesday morning.

Both directions of MS 29, between US 49 and West Flora Gene Avenue, are completely closed to through traffic, due to a gas leak, MDOT says.

Officials hope to have the matter resolved before noon.

–UPDATE: MDOT officials say “Hazmat cleared” at 11:40 a.m. No other details or explanation is given.
