Lane, road closures could affect Hub City drivers

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Multiple lane and road closures could affect drivers in the Hub City over the next several days. The City of Hattiesburg announced the road projects Wednesday morning.

A construction project that's expected to take 90 days has shut down the N 12th Ave. bridge over Gordons Creek at Conti St.

According to the city, traffic will be detoured off a portion of Main St. between W Red St. and W 8th St. starting Thursday to repair a water leak. The detour will divert southbound traffic down W Red St. to Providence St. to W 8th St. and northbound traffic to W 8th St. to Providence St. to W Red St. 

The city expects the work to be complete by next Monday.

On Hardy St., drivers could experience traffic delays Wednesday as crews work to repair a water line in the area near S Hutchinson Ave. and S 13th Ave.

The city expects those repairs to be complete by Thursday morning.

Landscaping work could cause traffic headaches for northbound drivers on Hwy. 49 through the rest of the week.

Parts of the right northbound lane of Hwy. 49 near William Carey Pkwy. will close as crews work to finish the landscaping project. The lanes closure will move along the highway with the work as it progresses.

The city hopes to have the landscaping done by next week.

A section of S 29th Ave. from Augusta Ave. to W Arlington Loop has been closed for an emergency water line repair. The city does not have a timeframe for when the repairs will be complete.
