Governor’s pledge of $10.2 million will accelerate Sangani-Jackson County connector project

JACKSON COUNTY, Mississippi –Jackson County supervisor Troy Ross said this week Gov. Phil Bryant’s pledge of $10.2 million in BP money towards the construction of a connector road between the Sangani Boulevard business district and northwest Jackson County will “dramatically” accelerate the project.

If all goes according to plan, construction will begin by the end of this year, said Ross, who represents the area where the connector road will be built.

Bryant made the pledge during the RESTORE Council meeting in Biloxi last month. The project, according to the governor’s office, will provide a critical link between major commercial developments in the St. Martin/D’Iberville area.
