JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - I-20 in South Jackson is closing tonight for the second time.

MDOT will shutdown I-20 West between the Terry Road and Ellis Avenue exits at 7:00 p.m.

Traffic will detour onto I-55 North, to I-220 South.

The Northbound on-ramp to County Line Road will also close to help reduce traffic congestion on I-55.

MDOT officials tell us they plan to make repairs to the Lynch Creek Bridge through the weekend... rain or shine.

I-20 is expected to reopen Thursday morning at 6 o’clock.
