Lamar Road Project to begin Monday

Posted: Updated:

Construction on a section of Purvis-Baxterville road in Purvis is expected to begin on Monday. 

Recent inclement weather has stalled the project which will close two-tenths of a mile of Purvis-Baxterville road between Shelby Speights drive and Talowah Road. The project which costs around 330 thousand dollars is to eliminate a horizontal curve.

According to Jason Lamb, project manager with Walker Associates, the project should pick back up early next week, and residents should be aware of the detour.

Once the road is closed, Coaltown and Purvis-Columbia roads will be the designated detour routes around the construction project.

"Our goal, due to the impact that it's going to have, is to keep the closure as minimal as possible," Lamb said.
