TRAFFIC ALERT: I-59 traffic now clear

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - An oversized 18-wheeler had traffic stalled on I-59 Monday morning.

The 18-wheeler had a height restricted load and could not fit under the 4th street bridge on I-59.

Traffic was down to one lane from Hwy 49 to Hardy so the 18-wheeler could turn around to avoid the bridge..

All lanes are back open and traffic is flowing smoothly.
