Officials say the investment in road work by the state and Madison County to link suppliers to the Nissan plant could exceed $60 million.
New proposed work includes:
- a nearly $7 million project to five-lane Old Jackson Road
- a new east-west parkway from U.S. 51 to Mississippi 463
- a connector road to the north that would parallel Interstate 55
- and a new I-55 interchange north of Gluckstadt that would involve the east-west parkway.
Already underway and nearing completion is nearly $35 million in road work around the Nissan site.
Officials said the increased traffic expected between the site and Nissan will be key to the success of the overall Nissan project.
