Providence St. in Hattiesburg reopens to traffic

Good news for folks in Hattiesburg who utilize Providence St. on the east side of the Hercules Plant.

The road reopened to traffic late last week after being closed for several months. Construction of a new sewer line between West Red St. and West 7th St. forced traffic to be diverted to Main Street. A public works official says they have temporarily put down limestone to get that stretch of road reopened. Their plan is  to let the sewer line settle and then repave the street.

Re paving

could take place as early as the spring.
