First phase of Coast highway project almost completed

JACKSON COUNTY — Work is nearing completion on the first phase of a comprehensive highway reconstruction project beginning at the U.S. Highway 90 interchange of Highway 63 and Highway 611 in Jackson County.

The $21-million phase one project was awarded to Tanner Construction Company and included construction of a new interchange for the intersection.

Mallette Brothers Construction of Gautier was awarded the $13.6-million second phase of work, which is set to begin next month.  The project will involve widening Highway 611 to five lanes from Old Mobile Highway to the end of the route near the Chevron Refinery.

Work will also include railroad crossing replacements as well as relocation and reconstruction of several intersections.  The highway will be widened on each side in phases, and motorists can expect intermittent one-lane traffic during construction.

The Mississippi Development Authority awarded Jackson County with the $35-million two-phase project.  Construction is scheduled for completion in June 2015.
