Starting Point: At MS 19 southeast of Meridian, Lauderdale County
Ending Point: At Mississippi/Alabama state line (Sumter CR 1), Lauderdale County
Official Distance (MDOT): 13.375 miles
Cities/towns over 5,000 pop served: None
Freeway Segments: None
Other Multilane Segments: None
Average Daily Traffic (1998): Ranges from 140 at the Alabama line to 1,000 near MS 19.
Notes: The first three miles east of MS 19 were reconstructed, realigned, and widened in 1998-99. This section is a very nice road, but unfortunately, that wasn't enough to stop one head-on collision in mid-April 2000 that resulted in 2 deaths.
What I'd Do: Nothing at present.
