I-55 reconstruction will affect Madison intersection

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Beginning Saturday, the intersection of Madison's Grandview Boulevard and Madison Avenue will be closed for a couple of weeks. The intersection is being shifted slightly to the east as part of the I-55 reconstruction in the area.

Starting at 7 a.m. Saturday, the section of Grandview just below the turnoff to the commercial area containing Miskelly Furniture and Malco Grandview Theater will be barricaded. Vehicles will not be allowed to travel from that point south to Madison Avenue, and traffic will not be allowed to enter the northbound lanes of Grandview Avenue from Madison Avenue.

The construction work, which is expected to last two weeks, will not interfere with east-west traffic traveling on Madison Avenue.

When the new intersection is complete, Grandview will line up with Cotton Hill Road to the south of Madison Avenue.

After the new intersection opens, Madison officials expect construction to begin on the Sam's store off Grandview at Madison Avenue.
