MDOT postpones closure of major Laurel intersection

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The planned closure of a major highway intersection in Laurel as part of a Mississippi Department of Transportation improvement project has been postponed. MDOT says the closure of the Highway 15/Highway 84 intersection has been re-scheduled for mid-July.

MDOT had planned on shutting down the intersection Friday night as part of a $3.1 million project to add an exclusive right turn lane from Congress Street south to the Interstate-59 southbound off-ramp.

Traffic signals are also being upgraded at the Highway 15/Highway 84 intersection.
