JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A three-month project by the Mississippi Department of Transportation to enhance safety on a stretch of Highway 537 in Jones County has begun.

It includes resurfacing a two-mile portion of the road from Northview Drive to Buck Temple Road. Additional banking will also be added to curved sections of the road.

After resurfacing, additional work will be done to improve traction. An old railroad crossing will also be removed.

MDOT officials said motorists can expect traffic delays during the construction.

The project has a cost of $977,000 and should be completed in November.
