NATCHEZ — Nearly eight years after its conception and after a number of unavoidable delays, construction on the $3.6 million port road project that will save miles of traffic time for some transport routes is complete.
Adams County Engineer Jim Marlow tells The Natchez Democrat the Government Fleet Road extension project, which will save seven miles round-trip for drivers entering the Natchez-Adams County port from the U.S. 84 corridor, only needs a final inspection and whatever last-minute work that inspection may provoke before it opens.
The contractor, W.E. Blain, the Mississippi Department of Transportation and the project engineer will conduct the final inspection.
Once the roadway passes final inspection, the new path will be ready to open, though Marlow said he could not be sure when that would be.
