MDOT Roadway Information Due to Flooding

JACKSON, MISS. — The Mississippi Department of Transportation would like to inform motorists of the following roadway information regarding the Mississippi River high flood waters.

MDOT is working in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide accurate information regarding the high flood water at the Mississippi River. MDOT continuously works to update survey data along with the Corps of Engineers who are updating their inundation maps to identify the affected roadways.

“The reports we’re getting from the Corps of Engineers and MEMA indicate that the rising waters are not slowing down any time soon,” said Central District Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall. “I encourage everyone in the areas likely to flood to heed our warnings, secure your belongings, and evacuate while you can. The rising water will make many routes impassable. Please follow www.gomdot.com for the latest updates on the road closures.”

Below is a list of present road closures, probable and possible future closures, for MDOT maintained routes due to the Mississippi River flooding. This list will be updated continually and is subject to change if predicted water levels change. MDOT intends to keep all roads open until they become affected by high flood waters.
