Temporary lane closures near Woodrow Wilson as crews repair sewer line

Construction Zone

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Construction crews will start working to replace a sewer line that runs under the intersection of Woodrow Wilson Avenue and Bailey Avenue Ext.

City officials said they will do the construction in three phases so that Woodrow Wilson can mainly stay open, but there will be a few lane closures.

For Phase 1 on the north side of the intersection, the following lane restrictions will be put into place:

  • Woodrow Wilson Ave Westbound: all traffic will merge into the far left turn lane at the intersection.  Left turns onto Bailey Ave Ext will be prohibited. Motorists needing to make the left turn will need to follow the posted detour signs.
  • Bailey Ave Ext Southbound: all traffic will merge into the right lane.  Left turns onto Woodrow Wilson Ave will be prohibited. Motorists needing to make the left turn will need to follow the posted detour signs.
  • Bailey Ave Ext Northbound: the left lane will remain closed as it has been for some time now.
  • Woodrow Wilson Ave Eastbound: no lane closures or turn restrictions.

These lane closures and restrictions will remain in place until this weekend.

City officials said next week crews will move to the middle of the intersection to continue the sewer repair work.

Drivers should use caution through the work zone.
