MDOT: Oxford-area road projects still on, but moving slowly

LAFAYETTE COUNTY — State transportation officials say road projects in the Oxford area are still on the drawing board — they are just being drawn very slowly.

Last year, the Mississippi Department of Transportation presented the city and Lafayette County a proposal that lumped a new Highway 6 intersection with two other projects.

The Oxford Eagle reports no agreement was reached on the projects.

MDOT District 2 Manager Richard Allen says the Highway 6 project is not dead. He says studies continue and alternatives are being discussed.

Allen could not say how long that process will take.
