Crews from the Mississippi Department of Transportation are continuing to monitor the condition of flooded highways throughout the Mississippi Delta region.
MDOT officials anticipate a slow but steady drop in water levels.
Commissioner Dick Hall says that while the Mississippi River is flowing in the right direction, roads that have been saturated for an extended time period will not be traffic ready immediately.
However, it’s not all bad news. Despite flood damage, there are no roads that are not repairable at this time.
And of course, those on the road are reminded not to drive around barricades or to try crossing flooded sections of roadways.
