Work on I-55 in Hinds County begins Monday

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

MDOT will begin work on the widening and reconstruction of I-55, from Byram to McDowell Road, Monday, May 20. Work will be going on 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Monday through Friday, between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., contractors will have two north bound and two southbound lanes open so the work will have the least amount of impact on travelers.

However, at night and on weekends, lane closures should be expected throughout the work zone.

Contractors will also add retaining walls, lighting, new signage, and do minor bridge work at Elton Road and McDowell Road.

The project completion date is November of 2015.
