JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The Mississippi Department of Transportation held their "People's Choice" awards Friday.
Supporters stood below the front steps of the capitol and listened to the speakers talk about safety. MDOT wanted people to vote for a road that they called the "Laurel S curve" that is in Laurel, Mississippi.
MDOT says this road was dangerous because many drivers wrecked and some even lost their lives. The road has now been changed for two years and only minor traffic accidents have occurred on this highway.
