County gets grant for infrastructure work
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) has awarded $150,000 to the Marshall County Board of Supervisors for the reconstruction of the Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park access road, Congressman Travis Childers announced.
ARC funds will be used to reconstruct Mt. Carmel Road into an access road for the Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park. This project will accommodate an increased road capacity and strengthen the road base for construction of approximately one mile of the road which will be upgraded from the original unpaved, narrow gravel road to a paved, three-lane road.
In addition to ARC funds, the State of Mississippi will contribute $932,645 and the Marshall County Industrial Development Authority will contribute $122,570, bringing the total project funding to $1,480,210.
