    I heard there is a detour around the damaged bridge in Mississippi. If you do come over, be sure to snap some pictures during the ride over. I have a feeling Mississippi is going to be hurting for quite some time.

    Have a good trip!

    I too will be traveling from Dallas to Seagrove in about a week. Anyone else hitting any of these highways in the next week, please share. This was our original route:

    I-20 Dallas, TX to Jackson, MS
    US49 Jackson, MS to Hattisburg, MS
    US98 Hattisburg, MS to Mobile, AL
    I-10 Mobile, AL to the 331 Bridge

    Any other suggestions are welcomed!

    Have you tried AAA or the DOT in LA, MS? It may be too early though. Good luck.

    I have not heard a recent update, but I do know that I-10 in Pensacola was closed Sunday. As Sueshore suggested, try the DOT or AAA websites for road closures.

    Thanks, wintersbk. We're going to drive down from Indy as soon as it looks possible, and your list is helpful! :idea:
