This project will widen and resurface four miles of US-69/75 between the US-70 junction in Durant to Chichasaw Rd. south of Calera.
This project will improve accessibility on and off the highway, protect key interchanges, create one-way frontage roads and add a much needed rail crossing to the four lanes of traffic, all to alleviate traffic congestion and improve safety.
