MDOT presents check to Forrest County

FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Mississippi Department of Transportation is recognizing the Forrest County Board of Supervisors with a check for $300,000 at their regular board meeting on Monday in Hattiesburg.

The check is for Transportation Alternative funding to improve the county's Rawls Springs Recreation Center. This includes the expansion of the center's pedestrian pathway.

Southern Transportation Commissioner Tom King says this ceremony officially launches the impending project.

"MDOT is proud to award this important fusing to Forrest County, and look forward to seeing citizens and visitors alike enjoy this recreational facility for many years to come," King said in a press release.

MDOT is working with Forrest County regarding when the new construction begins.
