Highway 26 repairs begin in George County

MDOT has announced emergency repairs have begun for the portion of Highway 26 that collapsed in George County in late August.

MDOT awarded a $1.8 million contract to T.L. Wallace Construction of Columbia to make emergency slide repairs to the roadway.

Once Highway 26 is reopened, crews will repave the local detour route used during the closure.

The project is expected to wrap up early 2022.
