MDOT will host hearings on highway

On Monday, MDOT environmental engineers and the consultants who developed the routes will meet with the public at the D’Iberville Senior Center, 10450 Lamey Bridge Road, from 4 to 7 p.m. On Tuesday from 4 to 7 p.m., they will meet with Latimer residents at the Latimer Community Center, 10908 Daisy Vestry Road.

Latimer has been particularly outspoken against one route that is proposed to go from Interstate 110, just north of I-10, through West Jackson County, to connect with Mississippi 57 just north of Vancleave, where the highways would run combined for 20 miles into Perry County.

Another alternative would be for Mississippi 15 to run north along its current route through a portion of the De Soto National Forest and Camp Shelby and into Perry County. A third route would avoid the complications of running through a military installation and the communities of West Jackson County and still link up with Mississippi 57 at some point.
