MDOT's plans for Highway 182 taking shape

STARKVILLE —  

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — State transportation officials expect to spend about $2 million on improvements to Mississippi Highway 182.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/12fmh0r) that Starkville city engineer Edward Kemp told local officials this week that work would include overlaying the road's surface within city limits, developing landscape islands, improving sidewalk access and re-pouring driveways.

Kemp says bid advertisements are expected to begin in June and construction could start shortly after work contracts are signed with the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

Highway 182 — formerly U.S. Highway 82 — originally served as a primary two-lane thoroughfare through the state. A portion of the road was widened to three lanes within the Starkville city limits. Even though the U.S. Highway 82 bypass was constructed, the road is still heavily used by local traffic.

Would you be willing to pay more in taxes to fund the program?
