ARTESIA, Miss (WTVA)- The largest economic development project in the State's history is coming to the Golden Triangle. 

This is expected to be a $2.5 billion dollar capital investment and will create over 1,000 jobs in Lowndes County. The average pay is predicted to be $93,000.                                        

Residents, business owners and local leaders in towns like Artesia are hoping the development will bring much-needed tax revenue to their town.

A special session regarding the development will be held Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock in Jackson.

Expect coverage from the state's capital with WTVA's Sami Roebuck and Chief Videographer Alvin Ivy.
