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 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.”

An $8.9-million project to replace two bridges on SR 198 continues in Marion County. Crews demolished the northern bridge then began replacement work. Currently, crews have started driving the production piles to support the new bridges.

This project was awarded to T.L. Wallace Construction, Inc., of Columbia and is expected to be complete in winter 2022.
