GAUTIER, MS (WLOX) – Gautier police are urging motorists to avoid the intersection of Gautier Vancleave Road and Martin Bluff Road.  That area now has power lines blocking the road.  And the situation is creating a traffic nightmare for people driving through the city.

According to a Gautier Police Department spokesman, a truck was pulling a MEMA trailer through the city.  And the driver was apparently unaware the trailer wouldn't fit under power lines.  Consequently, several power lines got snagged.  And a couple of power poles snapped. will let you know as soon as the Gautier Vancleave/Martin Bluff intersection reopens.
