Highway-widening project underway

NEW ALBANY — Transportation officials have kicked off an $18-million project to expand heavily traveled Mississippi Highway 15 to five lanes through New Albany.

Northern District Transportation Commissioner Bill Minor says the project is expected to be completed in June 2012.

Minor says the work will take so long because several bridges are involved, including what will be a five-lane bridge over the Burlington Northern rail line.

Minor says the project will help Ripley and Ecru as well because of the traffic to and from Ashley Furniture and other industries.
