The full release can be read below:

Four bridges along Interstate 22 in Lee County are part of a $5.7 million bridge preservation and paving project.

The bridge work includes joint repair, joint sealing and repair of bridge concrete.

Five miles of I-22, from State Route 178 to U.S. 45, have been repaved as part of the project.

The project was awarded to APAC-Mississippi Inc., of Richland, and is expected to be completed this fall.

Construction zones present new traffic patterns and configurations that can cause confusion for some motorists. For information about how to navigate highway work zones safely, visit GoMDOT.com/drivesmartms.

“Workers may be present on these maintenance and construction projects,” said Melinda McGrath, P.E., MDOT Executive Director. “MDOT encourages drivers to slow down in work zones so our crew members can make it home safe to their families.”
