Washed out road repaired, reopened

LYMAN, MS (WLOX) - Drivers who have to use Mark West Road in Lyman are breathing a sigh of relief tonight. Road crews have patched a section of the road that washed out Thursday morning.

WLOX News Now viewer Leilani Foxen sent us this picture showing the massive collapse. Mark West Road is a dead end, so it's the only way in or out for many residents, including Foxen.

"I was trapped from early in the morning to about 4pm," Foxen said. "They just put mud and gravel over it and hopefully it won't rain again and wash it away."

More permanent repairs will be completed later, but this patch will work for now.
