Lake Harbour Drive Extension Under Construction

Progress continues on the City of Ridgeland's extension of Lake Harbor Drive.  The extension project will allow travel from Spillway road west to Highland Colony (via a bridge over I-55).

The road will include sidewalks and a multipurpose trail. 

Unfortunately, as evident in the picture above, there will not be any interstate access as, according to city leaders, it's too close to the Natchez Trace exit (immediately north) and I-220 junction (immediately south). 

Nonetheless, another east-west corridor for Reservoir area residents is helpful.

Although the new road doesn't make I-55 significantly more accessible, it will make trips to the new Costco easier.  Costco is currently under construction just north of where the new road intersects with Highland Colony. 

The project is estimated to cost approximately $22 million, with 80% of the cost paid by federal funds. 

Completion is scheduled in the summer of 2020.
