Transportation meetings finalized

JACKSON – Dates and locations have been finalized for three public hearings to gather input on how to deal with the state’s transportation needs.

A study committee formed by the state Senate has been looking at Mississippi’s transportation needs and how to fund them. Earlier this month the task force agreed to hold three public hearings – one in each transportation commission district.

The meeting in the Northern District will be Dec. 16 at the Inn at Ole Miss in Oxford.

The Central District meeting will be Dec. 2 at the Capps Technology Center in Moorhead and the Southern District hearing will be Dec. 18 at the Trent Lott Center at the University of Southern Mississippi.

All meetings are slated for 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.
