LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Highway 589 is now open to motorists after the road was washed out in the March floods.
The road now has a bridge and is a completed highway.
More than 10 inches of rain fell in portions of Lamar County back in March and destroyed the major highway in the process.
The flood waters receded and left broken asphalt and an empty roadbed for roughly a quarter mile stretch of the highway.
The project took close to seven months to complete.
