Preliminary work under way on Jackson St trail; process slower than planned
PROGRESS IS SLOW but steady on a planned multipurpose trail along East Jackson Street in Ridgeland, one official said.
“We are designing this project in-house and saving a lot of money, but it’s taking us a little bit longer. And so much of this stuff is depending on how quickly MDOT [Mississippi Department of Transportation] approves things,” said Ridgeland Public Works Director Mike McCollum.
“It’s probably going to be nine to 12 months [before we open bids]. We still have a little ways to go.”
