According to Natchez Trace Parkway officials, a seven-mile stretch of the Natchez Trace Parkway between U.S. 49 and I-55 in the Jackson-metro area that has been closed since October 31, 2019 has been reopened.
The road was closed on October 31, 2019, so crews could replace a culvert. The culvert was replaced on January 5, 2020.
On January 22nd of this year, Parkway officials had originally stated it would take 2 weeks of dry weather before they could complete the project.
