Eastbound Lanes Re-opened on U.S. 90

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) re-opened the eastbound lanes of U.S. 90 in Harrison County February 27. The lanes had been shut down due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.

Motorists traveling U.S. 90 between the Veteran's Administration Center and DeBuys Road should be aware that traffic is opened to four lanes but with restrictions. There will be lane closures on the inside lanes both east and westbound in specific areas so that work can continue in the median. Crews will be rerouting traffic as they began re-striping, changing and moving signs and activating traffic signals.

"Any change in driving conditions can cause some initial confusion," said Wayne Brown, southern transportation commissioner. "A little extra caution will help this traffic change to go smoothly and safely."
