EAST MISSISSIPPI — Widening of Mississippi Highway 19 from two to four lanes is being completed four months ahead of schedule, state officials said.

The Meridian Star reports officials of the Mississippi Department of Transportation plan ceremonies Wednesday in the House community to mark completion of the project.

The highway was widened from the Lauderdale County line to just north of Mississippi Route 492 in Neshoba County.

Contractor for the $33.4 million project was Eutaw Construction Co. Work began in 2009.
