Leflore County

SH-1 is closed between US-271 and US-259 through the Ouachita National Forest due to damage from a land slide.

Murray County

I-35 is narrowed to one lane in each direction near US-77/Turner Falls (mile marker 51), south of Davis, while repairs are made to stabilize the rock face near the interstate. Drivers should continue to expect delays in the upcoming weeks and consider using US-81 or US-69 as alternate routes.

SH-102 is open to only local traffic between SH-9 and SH-59B as crews repair damage to surface and drainage areas of the highway. The roadway may reopen within a week.

Pushmataha County

US-271 is open to one lane south of Clayton as a contractor continues making repairs to shore up severe erosion after heavy rains in May damaged both the roadway and the road bed. Permanent repairs are expected to take up to eight weeks to complete.
