STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A long stretch of road southwest of Starkville was a top story during the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors meeting. 

The Starkville Daily News reports the topic of paving Longview Road in the county presented itself for discussion during the Monday meeting.

The newspaper reports the paving of Longview Road was originally the board's top project for this term, but ultimately federal funds were allocated to bridge inspections of road projects. 

Without the federal money, the cost of paving the roadway would cost the county more than $5 million, the newspaper reports. 

This sum of money is something the county does not currently have to spend on the roadway. 

However, the opportunity may come forward to pave parts of the road.
