Construction and maintenance projects include bridge replacements, safety improvements, concrete repair, and more. 

On Thursday, the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) announced several construction and maintenance projects in northeast Mississippi. Projects include bridge replacements, safety improvements, concrete repair, and more.

District 1 Engineer Matt Dunn said that MDOT has made substantial progress on many of their paving and bridge replacement projects this summer due to the dry weather.

“With the number of projects underway across the district, be cautious when approaching work zones, pay attention to traffic changes and watch for workers on the highway,” Dunn added.

Below are some of MDOT’s projects that  are underway in northeast Mississippi:

  • Lottery-funded paving projects started
  • State Route 76 construction in Itawamba County
  • State Route 25 overlay in Itawamba and Monroe Counties
  • State Route 25 safety improvements in Tishomingo County
  • Overlay and signal upgrades on U.S. Highway 72 and State Route 785 in Alcorn County
  • State Route 25 and State Route 19 mill and overlay in Winston County
  • Bridge replacements and preservation project in Lee County
