Hattiesburg Reaches Paving Milestone with Winter/Spring Paving List

Hattiesburg, Mississippi – On Monday, city officials released the winter/spring paving list for 2021, rounding out a paving investment of approximately $1.5 million of total paving dollars for each ward and 75 total city miles over the course of the last three and a half years. 

“Addressing infrastructure in our city has been a top priority for both our administration and the City Council,” said Mayor Toby Barker. “Reaching 75 miles of paved road in three-plus years is a significant milestone. Still, there remains much work to do, and we are committed to helping every neighborhood achieve progress.”

The paving list is created based on staff recommendations, community feedback and requests by City Council members.
