HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Several roads will close in downtown Hattiesburg on Thursday, April 26, for the Jimmy Buffet concert at the Saenger Theater.

The city's traffic division, Hattiesburg Police Department and Hattiesburg Fire Department will provide supporting services to the theater, according to a Hattiesburg news release. 

The following roads will be closed at specific times on Thursday:

  • Forrest Street between West Front Street and West Pine Street (all day)

Barricades will accommodate outbound traffic for businesses and residents along these streets, directed to West Pine Street. Detour routes will also be established to direct traffic around downtown Hattiesburg, according to the city.
