Support Grows for Fixing Mississippi Roads & Bridges
Over 6,200 Responses Stretch More Than 1 Mile
Over 6,200 Mississippians have signed forms asking their legislators to make fixing Mississippi's roads and bridges a priority in 2017. The responses, emphasizing Mississippi Roads Matters, have been collected in just three weeks' time.
If the responses were laid out end-to-end, they would stretch over a mile long.
Unsafe roads and bridges hurt jobs in Mississippi. Over 2,000 Mississippi bridges won't carry the legal weight they were designed for. Plus, there are thousands of miles of hazardous roads.
