The Hinds Parkway is officially open! County officials held a ribbon-cutting this morning at the section of the parkway that includes approximately 3.24 miles of roadway beginning at the intersection of Davis Road and extending northwest to Parks Road. The project cost about $28 million dollars.

We’re honored to play a role in this 18-mile transportation corridor designed to enhance both economic development and energy efficiency.

The entire project will consist of an 18-mile, low speed (45 mph) multi-lane parkway style road situated between the Byram Community at I-55 in the southern portion of the Jackson Metropolitan Area, extending northwestward to the Norrell Road Interchange at I-20 in Clinton. The design concept further calls for sidewalks, pedestrian walking trails, and biking trails along with access limitations to ensure public safety and enhance levels of service.
