Lane closures on 45 postponed by weather

By NEMS Daily Journal

JACKSON – The Mississippi Department of Transportation on Tuesday postponed a scheduled lane closure on Highway 45 in Lee County, citing weather conditions.
The closure was to allow the installation of the first 3.5-mile section of a larger 20-mile cable barrier project. Once a new date is set, the barrier will be installed along Highway 45 from the Eason Boulevard interchange to the Verona exit. There will be subsequent closures of the inside lanes from Eason Boulevard to Main Street and then to McCullough Boulevard as each section’s grade work is completed.
The project was awarded to Simmons Erosion Control of Lake at a cost of $3,439,494.29.
