Clearing the way

By NEMS Daily Journal

Crews moved dirt into place on Monday in preparation for construction of a bridge over the Natchez Trace, visible in the background to the west, near Barnes Crossing. The bridge and another over U.S. 78 will connect the Northern Loop that is part of the city’s Major Thoroughfare Project. The Trace bridge project is expected to take about 16 months to complete.
