Craft Road construction work to begin Friday

Road to be closed for much of the summer in front of Lewisburg schools

DeSoto County Government has announced that Craft Road in front of the Lewisburg schools is about to close for a good part of the summer.  

Starting Friday, May 27 at 5 a.m., officials will close the road in both directions. It is expected to reopen shortly before school is to resume, either late July or early August.  

The road closure is needed to replace a box culvert under the roadway.  

Drivers in the area should be aware of marked detours during construction and are marked in green on the included map.  

For the northern Detour Route, take Byhalia Road east, north on Ross Road, then west on Bethel Road.

For the southern detour, take Bethel Road east, south on Ross Road, west on Byhalia Road.

Craft Road box culvert work detour routes in effect through late July-early August.
