ITAWAMBA COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - Crews will begin a pavement preservation project next week in Itawamba County.

The Mississippi Department of Transportation says the project includes an approximately four-and-a-half mile section of State Route 363 from State Route 371 to State Route 178.

The work is set to begin on June 4 and is expected to be completed by June 7.

"This operation will seal cracks to minimize moisture penetrating through the surface and then an aggregate driving surface," said MDOT District 1 Engineer Mark Holley. "With limited funding available for maintaining the state highway system, pavement preservation treatments such as this are a necessity and are being used across the nation successfully."

Motorists should be aware of warning and work zone signs, highway workers and equipment.
