TUPELO, MS — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) announces several construction and maintenance projects in northeast Mississippi.

“As we continue to invest in infrastructure, we see miles of improvements,” said Northern District Commissioner John Caldwell. “Subsequently, we all see so much more that needs to be done. The right kind of effort to improve our North Mississippi highways and bridges should pay dividends for decades to come. If we slow down now, we’ll pay a hefty price. That is why I am concentrating my efforts on immediate tangible results and long-term solutions at the same time. All of us want ‘more faster,’ and that requires increased funding.”

Progress is being made on the mill and overlay and signal detection upgrades of three miles of State Route 8 in Chickasaw County through the City of Houston. Paving is complete and permanent stripe will be completed when weather allows. The $3.3 million project was awarded to APAC-Mississippi of Jackson. Work is expected to be completed in spring 2023.

Work will begin soon on five miles of State Route 9 in Union County from State Route 178 to State Route 348. The project includes base repair, mill, and overlay. The $4.1 million project was awarded to APAC-Mississippi. Work is expected to be completed in fall 2023.
