MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A traffic shift is planned on Interstate 20/59 in Meridian early next week. Mississippi Department of Transportation crews will be working on replacing a westbound bridge Monday, Aug. 15. The shift will happen by 12 noon that day.

Westbound traffic will shift to the median detour between Exit 156 and 157A. This will require shutting down the Highway 45 south ramp to I-20/59 for about 30 days.
