Crash on I-55 at US 98 East EX 15A in Pike County has ALL northbound lanes BLOCKED. Map Impact: https://t.co/ielu9jRCNS #MShwys
Proud of Mississippi DOT crews who worked through the night/early morning clearing snow & ice from roads/bridges. Snow covered the roadways in some areas, but crews have cleared the lanes of most of the frozen precipitation. As a result, Mississippi DOT roads/bridges are open & traffic is moving.
There are now reports of ice on roads and bridges in 17 Mississippi counties.
Rising temperatures, sunshine and our Mississippi DOT crews are clearing roads, but patches of ice may still be present, especially in shady areas under bridges or trees.
As crews continue to clear roads of snow and ice and temps begin rising, check the Mississippi DOT traffic app and https://t.co/YpM4Q4YH51 for road conditions in your area.
Continue to stay off icy roads and bridges while our crews work. #MShwys #mswx
