Mallette to begin work on I-10
MISSISSIPPI GULF COAST — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) will soon begin work to add lanes to Interstate 10 from Interstate 110 to State Route 609. The $12.8-million construction project was awarded to Mallette Brothers Construction Company Inc. of Gautier.
Construction is scheduled to begin Nov. 2. Crews will add lanes both eastbound and westbound starting at the Harrison-Jackson county line extending one mile east of Exit 50.
Motorists should be aware of intermittent lane closures eastbound and westbound in the vicinity of the Exit 50 overpass bridge to make room for the widening of the bridge. During the first phase of the project, the outside lanes will be closed eastbound and westbound from I-110 to Exit 50, restricting traffic to only two lanes. During this time paved shoulders will be built to the outside. This phase should take two to three months to complete.
The second phase of construction will consist of adding the new lanes to the inside; during this time, there will be three lanes of traffic eastbound and westbound.
The end result will be four lanes eastbound and westbound from I-110 to Exit 50 and three lanes eastbound and westbound from Exit 50 to the east one mile. All construction is expected to be completed during daylight hours. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2010.
