Blackjack Road in the Pearl River community is closed to through traffic until further notice due to a sinkhole.
Blackjack Road is located between Geyser Falls Water Theme Park’s main entrance and Division of Schools Drive (Bureau of Indian Affairs Route No. 2248).
The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians says heavy rainfall during recent storms have caused significant damage to a section of road and construction personnel have been mobilized to assess damage and are developing a repair plan.
Detour signage will be posted in the area to direct motorists to North Oswald Road which is the alternate route. The road closure will not affect Geyser Falls or any other tribal facilities.
Blackjack Road will be reopened to through traffic as soon as safe conditions have been restored.
