MDOT - Interstate 59 Traffic Update

At this time, service stations in Picayune, Poplarville and McNeill, Miss., are out of gas. Additonal supplies are in route. Trafic on Highway 11, an alternate route many motorists take when they don't find gas, exceeds manageable capacity. Therefore, exits along the contraflow path on Interstate 59 are currently closed and will re-open at 2p.m.  This will continue in one hour increments until the situation improves. MDOT will keep you posted with updates.
