Federal Financial Help For Pearl Road

The City of Pearl will get some federal money to help build a new access road to the Bass Pro Shop and Braves Stadium.

The city will get $1,000,000 to help with the project. That money will come from the Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration.

Senator Trent Lott made the announcement Wednesday from Washington. He says the Bass Pro Shop alone is expected to create 300 new jobs and invest $39,000,000 in the facility during its first three years in Pearl.
