JACKSON COUNTY

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun a project to resurface a section of Highway 57 in Jackson County this week, according to MDOT Southern Transportation Commissioner Tom King. 
 
The project involves three miles of roadway along Highway 57 from U.S. Highway 90 to Interstate 10 in Jackson County.  Work has begun throughout the project to remove vegetation from the shoulders in preparation for paving. 
 
The $1.69 million project was awarded to Mallette Brothers Construction, Inc. Motorists can expect intermittent daytime lane closures while paving crews complete the work. 
 
Construction is scheduled for completion by June 2014.
