Extremely large loads to be moved to Kemper
The Mississippi Department of Transportation would like to inform motorists of the upcoming transport of extremely large loads to Kemper County. MDOT has provided the public with a schedule for the transportation of these large loads from CFI.
Beginning Sunday night, Nov. 6, there will be two transport vehicles moving extremely large loads from Holly Springs along Highway 7 to the new bypass, all the way to Highway 78, then to U.S. Route 45 Alternate to U.S. Route 45, from U.S. Route 45 to Highway 16, and lastly to Highway 493 south to the power plant construction site in Kemper County. These loads will contain large “lower mixers” that are over 20 feet wide and will also require each vehicle to occupy two lanes of the highway along the designated route.
Law enforcement officers from the Kemper County Sheriff’s Office and DeKalb Police Department will assist in managing traffic during each transport.
