Warren Mott Parkway scheduled to open soon

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - An newly constructed road between Interstate 59 and Highway 11 is days away from being completed.

Jones County Engineer Ronnie Clark said the newly design road will replace Monroe Road and Church Street in Southern Jones County and Northern Forest County.

Clark said the road was as designed to help eliminate the sharp curves and decrease accidents.

Clark said they had hoped to have the road open by now but things didn't go quite as planned.

Construction for the new road will cost a million dollars.
