HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - If you travel on Highway 11 North of Lumberton, you are going to have to find a new route for the next few months.

M-DOT is getting ready to start a road project on the Highway 11 underpass.  John Walton Construction, based in Mobile, Alabama was awarded the contract Wednesday.

District two Supervisor Ben Winston said, this underpass has been a major concern for the county for a long time.

The crew will redo the underpass so that the drainage system will no longer be a problem.

Southbound traffic will be re-routed to Yawn School Rd. and traffic headed Northbound will be re-routed to Highway 13 East.
