Cleveland gets money for boulevard

JACKSON — The city of Cleveland will receive $1.1 million for construction of a boulevard and trail to venues at Delta State University in Cleveland.

U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., says the project is designed to alleviate traffic through residential areas.

Cochran says the funding is part of $3.3 million from the Federal Highway Administration for four projects in Mississippi.

Other projects are:

- $440,864 for the city of Senatobia for a lighting project at the south Senatobia Interstate 55 interchange with Mississippi Highway 740, including lighting the intersection on 740 between I-55 and U.S. Highway 51.

- $844,990 to Jackson to finance a project converting Capitol Street into a two-way thoroughfare that will be more pedestrian-friendly.

- $918,467 for construction of a one-mile, two-lane road connecting Jonestown with Mississippi 316.
