The Mississippi Department of Transportation says its crews continue road recovery efforts following Hurricane Nate, which struck the Gulf Coast on October 8.

“All travel lanes are open, but MDOT crews will continue clearing sand from medians and shoulders along the U.S. Highway 90 corridor,” said Transportation Commissioner Tom King in a news release. “Motorists should continue being on high alert for roadside crews clearing these areas throughout the week.”

MDOT reports that most traffic signals along U.S. 90 are running, but several in the Biloxi area remain in flash mode and should be treated as four-way stops. MDOT crews will also spend the week raising the high-mast lighting systems that were lowered before the storm.
