Construction begins on south greenville, ms freeway

The new US 82 bypass will run from Greenville’s new MS river bridge to present-day 82 near Leland. Venice pizza & pasta coatesville Grading and draining is now underway between the bridge and MS Hwy 1, and this segment apparently will include a couple cloverleaf interchanges.

Here’s the relevant section of the poorly-written MDOT press release:

Highway 82 bypass in Washington County – This is the first stage of a four stage project to construct a by-pass from the Mississippi River to Leland in Washington County.


Domino’s pizza in venice fl This project swings south of Greenville and is the grade, drain and bridge portion of the first project which stretches from the Mississippi River to Highway 1. Venice pizza chesapeake menu This particular project consists of bridges at Highway 454, Wilcox Road, Redman Road, Main Extended, and Highway 1. Venice pizza chesapeake va It will contain two clover leaf interchanges at Highway 454 and Highway 1. Venice pizza huntsville al website When completed, the Highway 82 by-pass will be a four-lane facility which will take most of the truck traffic out of Greenville by providing a corridor for those trucks to travel from Highway 61 to the newly constructed Mississippi River Bridge.

Maybe I just don’t know what to look for, but I can’t tell what type of interchange is being built from that picture.

I remember thinking when I first read the press release I quoted above how odd it was to build a cloverleaf on this bypass anywhere other than, maybe, at MS 1. Marco’s pizza in venice florida But this state has a history of building them at what I would consider odd places, so I wasn’t incredulous. Venice pizza ridley park Two other examples right on US 82 would be the ones at Leland and Greenwood. Venice pizza ridley park pa There are other places along that highway where I think a cloverleaf might have made more sense than at those two spots.

The interaction with 61 toward Vicksburg has always appeared to be minimal at that spot. Venice pizza ridley park menu Seems like that interchange might just as well have been a parclo, with the left-turns on 61. Venice pizza in ridley park pa I’ve never been through there at a time when the traffic going to/from the south was heavy, and I lived in Greenville for a couple years.

For the same reason, though, a cloverleaf might make more sense on the new freeway at MS 1, even though the map posted above would suggest there won’t be one. Pizza restaurants in venice fl People travelling to or from Vicksburg are more likely to use that route, and development south of that interchange is bound to increase once the new road is in place.

Nope…it’s more associated with the new US 82 bridge across the Mississippi River.

The proposed I-169 spur extending to Greenville, though, is supposed to connect with the bypass when it is completed.

Does anyone have any updates on this project? When I was in the area around New Year’s, the road bed was complete, but nothing else had been laid. Marco’s pizza venice florida It’s disappointing that the eastern half south of Leland may not be done.

The way MDOT typically works for new highway or widening projects, they’ll first do a project to grade the road, build drainage, and build bridges. Venice pizza utica ny Then they’ll come in later with a contract to pave the road.
