Expect I-10 lane closures, I-110 ramp closures for construction

The state Department of Transportation will begin work on a resurfacing project along Interstate 10 in Harrison County this week.

Work will include milling the roadway and resurfacing 8 miles of I-10 from Shorecrest Road to Galleria Parkway, commissioner Tom King said. Lane closures at night will be required in later phases of construction.

Motorists also can expect lane closures in Jackson County from exits 50 to 57 on Sunday through Thursday nights due to construction.

In addition, the Interstate 110 off-ramps at Bayview Avenue and Division Street will be closed one night this week while overhead signs are installed.

MDOT announced the southbound exit at Bayview Avenue will be closed from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday. The Division Street exits will be closed between 7 p.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. Friday. Work will begin on the southbound exit and when that is complete, the northbound on ramp will be closed.

MDOT said the closures are expected to be less than the 11 hours allotted.
