If nothing is done to improve road and bridge conditions, the average cost per driver in Mississippi would increase by $640 per year. Funding for transportation over the last three decades has remained stagnant - however, over the same period, there has been a 108% increase in inflation and a 217% rise in construction costs. Something must be done to fix this problem - and MEC has worked hard to find a solution.
Excelerate Mississippi is an initiative created by the Blueprint Mississippi Transportation Infrastructure Task Force, and it outlines a long-range, ongoing program with sustainable allocation of resources year after year.
Through this approach, Mississippi can continue to excel in economic development, while accelerating our approach to deal with the worst bridges and roads.
