7 million in projects planned in the Mississippi delta

More than $7.2 million will soon be invested in the Mississippi Delta. The Delta Regional Authority and its federal and state partners are investing the money into strengthening Mississippi's workforce, infrastructure and economy.

Chris Masingill, the organization's co-chairman, says they are going to invest in construction of a new levee in Natchez, a new Amtrak platform and pavilion in Quitman County, the construction of permanent exhibits at the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale and improved water infrastructure across the state, among others items.

Masingill says the projects will create jobs, build communities and improve the lives of families across Mississippi and the Delta.
