S-Curve project eligible for national award

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - You can help the City of Laurel win a national highway award for its S-Curve reconstruction project. The project, which is about 90 percent complete, is a finalist for a People's Choice Award for America's Transportation Awards.

It's an online contest sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

Today, the City of Laurel hosted a pep rally to encourage residents to go online and vote for the Laurel project. There's no limit to the number of times you can vote.

You can take part by going to www.americastransportationaward.dot.org. The voting ends on October 18th.

The People's Choice Award will be presented at the A.A.S.H.T.O.'s annual meeting in Biloxi later this month.
