Fluid spill on Mississippi 57 in Ocean Springs causing traffic delays

Drivers traveling southbound on Mississippi 57 near Ocean Springs High School should consider taking an alternate route Wednesday morning as officials work to clean a fluid spill on the roadway.

Southbound lanes of the highway just past Old Spanish Trail were briefly blocked Wednesday morning, according to an alert from the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

By 9:45 a.m., traffic was moving again, but MDOT says drivers should expect delays in the area.
