Tucker bridge construction continuing
Work on a $11.7 million two-lane bridge replacement project at Tucker which began last May is scheduled to be completed by the fall.
Work got underway Monday four-laning a 4.52-mile stretch of Highway 19 from Tucker into town.
“What a wonderful day for Neshoba County,” said state Sen. Jenifer Branning at a formal groundbreaking on Tuesday. “Like many of y’all, I was born and raised here. Even as a small child I remember conversations about the need for four-lane access to Neshoba County. There are so many people to thank for this day.”
A final stretch of four-lane from Tucker to House remains — including a second lane of bridges here — unfunded as does the $130 million bypass from Highway 19 to Williamsville that has been on the drawing board for three decades.
