Some roads in Gulfport and Starkville, Mississippi, 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 dollars in federal grant funding for road improvements.
The award, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s “Build Grant,” will assist with the construction of a new roadway and overpass in Gulfport, and support road improvements along a state highway in Starkville.
Senator Wicker says the grants will support the completion of these two high-priority projects in Mississippi that will improve safety and enhance access to important economic centers.
