Greenfield Road to close for bridge replacement in Rankin County

News

RANKIN COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – The Rankin County Road Department will close Greenfield Road on Sunday, February 14.

The closure will be between the Dollar General and Greenfield Village beginning at 4:00 p.m. Crews will replace a bridge.

Due to its current condition, leaders said the bridge does not meet the standard of sufficiency necessary to support school buses, fire trucks, waste collection vehicles, or commercial trucks.

Alternatives to a full closure of Greenfield Road to through traffic were fully explored; however, no other alternative was feasible due to confined space limitations caused primarily by the project’s proximity to the adjacent Kansas City Southern Railway property. This bridge replacement has been deemed a high priority for Rankin County.

The Board of Supervisors has been advised that this project is expected to be completed on or before April 30, 2021, weather permitting.
