TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo city officials said a minor change will improve a plan to straighten the Lumpkin Street and West Main Street intersection.
It was voted upon by the Major Thoroughfare Committee in a meeting Tuesday night, and it was approved.
The city will tear down a home currently on the property as part of the agreement.
According to city engineer Dennis Bonds, the project will cost about $540,000.
There will be some minor inconvenience to the traveling public as the work is being done.
Drivers will be able to use nearby streets such as Washington and Roosevelt as alternate routes when Lumpkin Street is closed during construction.
When construction begins, which is still unknown, it will take 90 days.
