TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Tupelo city leaders are looking at a plan to study traffic in the city.
The City Council discussed a request by the Major Thoroughfare Committee to hire a consultant to take a border-to-border look at where the city has come in the last 20 years.
The findings will help with decisions on what projects will need to be developed in the next two decades.
The consultant would look at traffic flow and use the information to determine where widening projects, including turn lanes, are needed.
City leaders say the study, which will seek input from the public, is expected to take nearly 10 months to complete once it gets underway.
Council members are tabling the measure for now to get more information from the Major Thoroughfare Committee.
WTVA's Javante Ingram will have more on the study on WTVA News at Five.
