BOONEVILLE — The Mississippi Department of Transportation will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony Sept. 6 at 10 a.m. in Booneville for the completion of the Highway 30 Bypass project.
The new bypass will not open to traffic Sept. 6 as the final construction phase is still being completed.
The project provides an eight-mile southern bypass of the City of Booneville. The bypass begins at a new interchange on U.S. 45 south of Booneville and continues east on a new location to the connection of existing Highway 30 east of the intersection of Highway 30 and Highway 364.
The new roadway consists of a four-lane section between U.S. 45 and Highway 145 and a two-lane section from Highway 145 to the connection of existing Highway 30. The access for the road is Type 1, limited access, from U.S. 45 to Highway 145 and a Type 2B access through the remaining project, where access is permitted at crossovers and at-grade crossings of county roads. There are interchanges at U.S. 45, Highway 145 and Highway 4. The intersection of Highway 364 and remaining county road crossings are at-grade crossings.
