$33 million granted for road improvements

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.
