Flyover traffic shifts to right lane todayPublished 12:00am Thursday, May 24, 2012
NATCHEZ — Traffic in the northbound lanes of U.S. 61 at the flyover intersection is scheduled to be shifted into the right lane at 10 a.m. today.craft
The Mississippi Department of Transportation said the left lane would be closed to allow the eastbound traffic from the D’Evereux Drive/Lynda Lee Drive intersection to shift right under the new bridge and merge into the highway.
MDOT’s work to construct a flyover bridge at the intersection is ongoing.
The next stage of work — which will begin in a few weeks — will involve the closing of entrances to the frontage road in order to construct curbs and gutters. Access points to Walgreen’s and Ryan’s will be open.
Traffic delays in this area could occur, and alternate routes should be considered.
