U.S. Highway 80 in Warren County has been reopened after a six month closure.

A portion of the roadway just west of Mt. Alban Road collapsed Feb. 11 after heavy winter rains, and the road has been closed since then.

Vicksburg based Theobald Construction Services completed the repairs in approximately six weeks. The estimate to repair the road was $339,787.

Mississippi purchased a small piece of property on the south side of the road to facilitate sloping the grade down the hill and prevent future erosion.
