The city of Jackson has stopped roadwork on the Woodrow Wilson Avenue project and canceled its contract with an asphalt company after concrete was discovered under the roadway.

City officials now are working to submit a new plan to the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

“It was best to go back and do the project right,” said Thelman Boyd, Jackson’s public works director. “I would rather deal with the delays than move through the project as it was.”
