MDOT Adding Four Way Stop Outside Lucedale

GEORGE COUNTY (WLOX) -- The Mississippi Department of Transportation is taking steps to make an increasingly busy intersection just outside Lucedale safer.

Next week, crews will begin installing signs warning motorists that everyone will have to stop at the intersection of Highway 198 and Old Highway 63 North. Locals know it as Evanston Road. Rumble bars will also be installed to force drivers to slow down.

The four way stop goes into effect on Thursday, May 8th.
