LONG BEACH, Miss. (WLOX) - A part of Beatline Road in Long Beach will be temporarily closed starting Monday as the city begins repairing a broken pipe.

Beatline Road between Johnson Road and Pineville Road will be temporarily closed on Monday, April 19, 2021, however, they’re also anticipating delays through Tuesday.

City officials say no sewage is leaking but pumps are on standby if temporary repairs don’t hold. It also needs to be noted that the pipe break is not related to weather.
