“BK Edwards is looking forward to the road improvements for our customers and vendors that visit daily,” said BK Edwards President and CEO Bruce Edwards. “We would like to thank the Mississippi Development Authority and the Webster County Supervisors for working with us to help improve economic growth in Webster County.”
The Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project to pave the access road leading to the company’s facility. Webster County is providing in-kind assistance for the project.
