At today's State of the County Address, Supervisor Troy Ross talked about one of the county's upcoming projects: a connector road, linking Jackson County to D'Iberville's promenade. Ross says the multi-million dollar plan will be an economic boom for Jackson County, while adding convenience to shoppers in Harrison County. Ross says, “Seaman Road, which will be a corridor along the interstate, which will help with the traffic flow in and out of Sangani, and hopefully bring that development into Jackson County. I don't know what the original conception was for, but when I look at it, I see it as economic development. I see it as a way to build a road that can generate more money and we can actually fund other road projects that are needed for safety, but that might not generate revenue.” With the connector leading to D'Iberville's growing shopping center, Ross says the county has already received inquiries about land on either side of the projected road. Construction on the connector is set to begin in early 2016.
