GOLDEN TRIANGLE AREA (WCBI) – Work on an overlay project on Highway 82 will continue through the summer.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation says crews are working on a ten mile stretch of pavement in Lowndes and Oktibbeha Counties.
MDOT says this is a pavement preservation project.
An agency spokesman says due to budget constraints, MDOT is focused on preserving the state’s current infrastructure.
The over $6 million project is scheduled to be complete by early fall.
