Major Thoroughfare Committee outlines plans for new projects

By Emily Le Coz/NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – The city’s Major Thoroughfare Committee today announced tentative plans for its Phase V projects.
Members said those plans, which have not been officially adopted by the committee, include the widening of sections of East Main Street, Eason Boulevard, Veterans Boulevard and Thomas Street Extended.
They also will add right-turn lanes along both sides of North Gloster Street.
The committee members will vote next month on whether to approve the projects.
After that, voters will have to give their approval before work can proceed.
