More time needed to complete work on I-55 project
COMMUTERS will have to wait an extra six months before work is finished on I-55 in Madison and Ridgeland.
A representative of the Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) said the original completion date of November 2014 has been moved back to May 5, 2015.
“We expect to meet the new completion date,” said MDOT public information officer Kenny Footé.
Yates Construction took over work on the new split-diamond interchange last year after Hill Brothers Construction lost money on another project and had to back out.
