Update: Interstate 10 /110 Interchange Improvements in Harrison Co. (Phase 1)

As the Mississippi Department of Transportation (M.D.O.T.) continues progress on the multi-million dollar economically driven infrastructure project at the I-10/I-110 Interchange, more phases of construction will be implemented in the coming weeks.

Weather permitting, beginning Wednesday, March 11th one of the loop ramps on the south side of I-10 at I-110 will be closed for approximately three weeks. This will affect traffic getting on I-10 eastbound at I-110. Exit 4A (I-110 south to I-10 east) will be closed during this time. This closure is necessary to realign the existing loop into a safer, more efficient configuration. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic around these closures. Through traffic on I-10 will remain unaffected.

Work began on the I-10 and I-110 interchange improvement project in Harrison County in 2013. The project includes the construction of new interchanges at D’Iberville Boulevard and Lamey Bridge Road, the realignment of the I-110/I-10 loops, and the installation of auxiliary traffic lanes to reduce traffic congestion and increase safety for motorists entering and exiting the interstate. Work is underway to rebuild the D’Iberville Boulevard Bridge, which is the centerpiece of the new Diverging Diamond Interchange. Work will soon begin on the realignment of the I-10/I-110 interchange loops. Phase I of the project was awarded to Gulf Equipment Corporation of Theodore, Alabama for $29.7 million. Work is scheduled for completion by Fall 2015.
