Lane Closure on Lower Spillway Road

The Pearl River Valley Water Supply District issued the following statement.

A temporary lane closure has been set up for a short distance on lower Spillway Road, East bound into Rankin County.  The excessive rainfall we have experienced today has created road hazards capible of causing vehicle damage.  Please prepare for delays on your evening commute. 


Repairs will begin as soon as possible but cannot be achieved during these roadway saturation conditions.

Does that mean standing water, the dam embankment is sliding in places, or the road is developing big potholes? One has to wonder.

Damn. I thought Madison and Rankin county roads were perfect, only Jackson had deteriorating roads. And this one is not that old, nor is it on Yazoo Clay.

Guess for the Jackson haters on this site, it's now time to move to Leake or Scott County.

Always trouble spots in the right lane.

Lol 5:09. I love both Jackson and Rankin but the difference is Rankin is on top of it and will fix it. Jackson cannot due to understandable reasons. Nor can Jackson keep the traffic lights functioning correctly, again I understand it’s hard on a shoestring budget.

@5:09 Once and for all I don't hate Jackson...or any other third world dump either.

Fake news

It is caused by total dam saturation. I've been having premonitions of a magnitude 5 earthquake happening beneath the Rez. If it happens during this rainfall I predict the dam fails. Jackson may be the next victim of climate change.

PRVWSD can't afford spell check?

Was on there today (Tuesday afternoon) It was a damn disaster. Huge holes every few feet.

The announcement is unclear. Is eastbound traffic possible? Is one lane closed or both? Is the upper road now two way traffic? Has Ridgeland installed tag-spotter cameras yet? Can egrets be bar-be-cued legally? Thanks for the confusion PRVWSD.

The right lane eastbound just needs to be milled and repaved for the entire length of the spillway. Looks like a road in Jackson.

5:09, I’m not a Jackson hater but you should probably self identify as a Rankin/Madison hater.
It’s inevitable that this comment appears on any problem of any kind in neighboring counties.
What you need to understand is that we realize problems will arise and we will deal with them.
The difference in Jackson is the great number of problems that arise and never get dealt with.

Spillway is all tore up due to Rankinites using it heavily on a daily basis. Also jam up Ridgeland roads during each rush hour with the lights favoring them each way. I always thought that when 25 was completed it would take most of this heavy traffic away. 25 is already obsolete. Need to put tolls on each end of the Spillway and charge $1 each way. These folks would gladly pay this. Split money between Madison, Rankin and PRVWSD.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
