LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — An exit that connects from Hwy 82 to 45 will be open in time for work on Monday.

Officials say the new loop exit for eastbound drivers trying to go north from Hwy 82 to Hwy 45 Alt. toward West Point is set to open July 7.

The $1.5 million project is supposed to prevent drivers from crossing the busy southbound lanes to turn left and go north.

The exit has been the scene of numerous accidents.
