MCCOMB, MS — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) continues moving forward with multiple projects throughout southwest Mississippi.

“MDOT’s goal remains the same for every project throughout Mississippi: improve driver safety,” said Commissioner Tom King, Southern Transportation District. “Whether it’s an overlay or a bridge repair we want to ensure each project is benefiting the traveling public, from safety to quality of life.”

Bridge Preservation Project on U.S. Highway 84 in Covington County
A $1.8-million project to preserve a bridge on U.S. 84 at the Okatoma Creek is wrapping up in Covington County. This project was awarded to Midway Construction. This project slightly realigned the creek channel and lined it with the riprap. Repairs were also made to the concrete shafts under the bridge. The objective was to prevent erosion of the shafts supporting the bridge. The bulk of this project has been completed with minor adjustments remaining.
Bridge Replacement Project on State Route 198 in Marion County
An $8.9-million project to replace two bridges on SR 198 is beginning in Marion County. This project was awarded to T.L. Wallace Construction, Inc.. Currently the construction signs are in place and the roadway has been closed. Crews will begin demolition of the northern bridge first then begin replacement work. The project is expected to be complete around winter 2022.
