M.D.O.T. to Close Loop Ramps on Southside of Interstate 10 /110 Next Week

As the Mississippi Department of Transportation (M.D.O.T.) continues progress on the multimillion dollar economically driven infrastructure project at the I-10/I-110 Interchange, more phases of construction will be implemented in the coming weeks.

Beginning Monday, March 2, the loop ramps on the south side of I-10 at I-110 will be closed during daytime hours only for approximately 5 business days, weather permitting. This closure will impact traffic getting on and off I-10 eastbound at I-110. Exit 4A (I-110 south to I-10 east) and Exit 46A (I-10 east to I-110 north) will be affected.

These closures are necessary to realign the existing loops into a safer, more efficient configuration. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic around these closures. Through traffic on I-10 will not be affected.

Work began in 2013 on the I-10 and I-110 interchange improvement project in Harrison County. The project includes the construction of new interchanges at D’Iberville Boulevard and Lamey Bridge Road, the realignment of the I-110/I-10 loops, and the installation of auxiliary traffic lanes to reduce traffic congestion and increase safety for motorists entering and exiting the interstate. Work is underway to rebuild the D’Iberville Boulevard Bridge, the centerpiece of the new Diverging Diamond Interchange. Work will soon begin on the realignment of the I-10/I-110 interchange loops.

Phase I of the project was awarded to Gulf Equipment Corporation of Theodore, Alabama for $29.7 million. Work is scheduled for completion by fall of 2015.
