If you travel Highway 49 in the Mendenhall area, you will need to find an alternate route. The highway is once again closed in both directions at Strong River.
Additionally, Highway 13 three miles north of Mendenhall is closed due to flooding.
Northbound alternative routes include: Highway 18 to Highway 541 back to Highway 49 and Highway 469 to Highway 28 to Highway 49. Southbound alternatives: Highway 49 to Highway 541 to Highway 18 and Highway 49 to Highway 18 to Highway 541.
The southbound lanes of Hwy 49 reopened Monday night, north of Mendenhall. But a news release early Tuesday morning shows it closed again. Water has been over the roadway at Dabbs Creek, stopping traffic in all directions.
No word on when the highways will reopen.
The National Weather Service of Jackson issued a flood warning on Tuesday morning for the Strong River at D'Lo in Simpson County.
The NWS says the flood warning has been extended until late Thursday night. The river is currently at 34 feet and rising.
