RIDGELAND, Miss. (WJTV) – Police officers and Natchez Trace Parkway rangers are working to keep traffic moving smoothly on Natchez Trace Parkway after a tree fell overnight.
A tree is now blocking both lanes near the I-55 North exit on Natchez Trace.
It seems the heavy rain and wind on Saturday night into early Sunday morning, caused the tree to fall.
Around 2:45 Sunday morning, officers were blocking off the road at Highway 51 and I-55 South exit on Natchez Trace.
They are telling drivers to take another route.
There is no word on when the tree will be removed at this time.
