VICKSBURG, MS - MAY 13: Bob Broadwater of the Mississippi Department of Transportation constructs a barricade across Highway 61 as workers build a levee on the roadway May 13, 2011 near Vicksburg, Mississippi. Drivers arriving at the barricade, about 11 miles from the city, are forced to detour more than 100 miles to reach Vicksburg. The Mississippi river at Vicksburg is expected to crest at a record 58.5 feet on May 19. Heavy rains have left the ground saturated, rivers swollen, and have caused widespread flooding in Mississippi, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas.
