A Mississippi Department of Transportation intersection improvement project will include new signage and other upgrades at a number of crossings in Alcorn County and throughout the district.

The intersections included in the project have seen higher numbers of traffic crashes over the last five years based on a crash report history from the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, MDOT said. Striping, delineation and warning improvements are included. Yellow reflective signs will indicate intersecting road numbers.

Each new treatment was recommended by MDOT’s Traffic Engineering Division based on the crash history and traffic volume of the specific intersection.

Intersections included in the project in Alcorn County are:

• Mississippi Highway 2 at North Shiloh Road and County Road 141

• Mississippi Highway 2 and Mississippi Highway 350

• U.S. 45 and County Road 405

• U.S. 45 and County Road 511

• U.S. 45 and County Road 514

• U.S. 45 and Mississippi Highway 356

• U.S. 72 at County Road 300 / County Road 262

• U.S. 72 at County Road 604 / County Road 736

• U.S. 72 at County Road 735

• U.S. 72 at County Road 747 / County Road 612

The project includes approximately 100 intersections throughout the 16 counties in District 1.
