Mississippi’s $7B Wish List Goes To Washington

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi has sent a roadwork wish list to the White House, asking for nearly $7 billion to fund four projects. State Transportation Director Melinda McGrath says current funding won’t come close to making the blueprints reality. Mississippi’s priority projects include a new four-lane US 49 “coast to capital connector” at a cost of $4.6 billion; other projects would improve access to the Port of Gulfport, widen Interstate 10 along the coast and build I-69 through Bolivar, Coahoma, and Tunica counties.
