WARREN COUNTY — Work has begun in Warren County to shore up the hillsides along parts of U.S. Highway 80 that eroded during January’s heavy rain.
State transportation officials tell the Vicksburg Post earthen bluffs at U.S. 80 and Rancho Road were set back farther to limit the impact of further mudslides.
Mississippi Department of Transportation engineer Kevin Magee says Warren County Road Department crews and equipment are working on washouts on Culkin Road.
County officials say rebuilding supporting soil beneath U.S. 80 in Bovina in an area that overlooks a hollow more than 100 feet deep should start next week, weather permitting,
Officials say traffic delays will be intermittent as work continues.
The Vicksburg area got more than a foot of rain during the first three weeks of 2013.
