RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) -

A road stabilization project started Wednesday morning on Old Agency Road.

Crews are repairing the road and relocating a roadside creek to prevent the road from collapsing.

"It was on the verge of being unsafe," said John McCollum, Director of the Ridgeland Public Works Department. "We are going to relocate this ditch to make the road stable and it will be safe again."

The project also includes new landscaping to the area.

Old Agency Road will be closed to traffic from west of Whippoorwill Lane to east of Patterson’s Crossing.

The Public Works Department expects the project to take approximately four to six weeks to complete.  Drivers will need to take alternate routes until the road reopens.
