Mississippi Highway 3 near Satartia remains blocked following a CO2 gas leak that was first reported at around 8:30 Wednesday night.

Yazoo County Emergency Management Director Jack Willingham said drivers can detour on Phoenix Road to Mechanicsburg Road, then 433 back to Highway 3.

There is no danger to the public, Willingham said, and the air is being monitored in the area, and other than being very loud, the situation is under control and traffic being rerouted is a precautionary measure.

The situation will be resolved by midafternoon Thursday, he estimated.
