Some roads in Gulfport and Starkville are now on the fast track for improvements thanks to federal grant funding.
This week, U.S. Senators Roger Wicker and Cindy Hyde-Smith, and U.S. Congressman Steven Palazzo announced the award of $33.1 million in federal grant funding for road improvements in Gulfport and Starkville in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Build Grant.
This will assist with the construction of a new roadway and overpass in Gulfport and millions more to support road improvements along a state highway in Starkville.
Senator Wicker says the grants will support the completion of two high-priority projects in Mississippi that will improve safety and enhance access to important economic centers.
