JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Monday to celebrate the completion of the West County Line Road project.
According to leaders with the City of Jackson, the more than 20-year project connects the heavily-traveled West County Line Road to East County Line Road for the first time. The project also includes changes to the roadways and infrastructure near Tougaloo College.
Leaders said the expansion will lead to more opportunities for the Jackson neighbors and students at the college.
The project was initially put on hold in 2009 due to funding. Leaders were able to move the project forward thanks to a Transportation Investment Economic Recovery grant.
