BRANDON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

MDOT crews will temporarily close the westbound right lane of Interstate 20 until Thursday evening at 6:00 between East Brandon (Exit 59) and Mississippi 18 East/Greenfield Road (Exit 54) in Rankin County to repair a pothole.

This pothole is sitting inside a construction project city crews are working on. 

According to Brandon Police Department's Chief Chris Butts, the right lane from Exit 59 to Exit 54 is shut down and expected to remain closed until 6:00 a.m. on Friday.

At 4:00 p.m. Thursday crews will be switching cones to the left lane. They will then shut down that lane to reopen I-20 WB right lanes. Because of weather, construction crews will work through the night to make these repairs.

MDOT asks that drivers are careful in this area and stay within the posted speed limit and not distracted by phones or other devices.
