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
