No easy solution to Park Dr. project

Residents of Park Drive were divided on whether new sidewalks, bike lanes or curb and gutter should be added to their street during a public hearing on Tuesday.

Another roadblock to safety?

If city and county officials sign a memorandum of understanding with the Mississippi Department of Transportation, an improved intersection at Highway 6 and West Jackson Avenue could still be three years out.

County upset with MDOT, MOU

During their regular meeting Monday, the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors agreed to meet with city officials to go over a joint MOU with the Mississippi Department of Transportation in regards to three local projects including the interchange at the West Jackson Avenue/Highway 6 intersection. Both city and county officials have expressed concerns about MDOT changing previously agreed upon details. Other issues discussed Monday included United Way’s Excel by 5 application; a  redistricting resolution and property being transfered for the new Winchester plant. (April 5, 2011, Page 2A)
