HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg City Council is considering proposed changes to the city's traffic control ordinance which would re-route large 18-wheeler trucks around downtown areas.
Proponents say the changes would encourage pedestrian traffic and protect downtown infrastructure.
Director of engineering Bennie Sellers discussed the proposed new truck routes with the city council on Monday.
If approved by the council, the new truck routes could be in effect by the beginning of next year.
Jefferson Davis County is undefeated in its program history. The first-year school defeated Harrison Central 25-10 on Friday to open the 2017 season. Bassfield and Prentiss high schools consolidated to form Jefferson Davis County this year, and the Jaguars didn't waste time making a name for themselves in class 3A football.More >>
