Hinds County has received $1.2 million from the Federal Highway Administration to develop the Byram-Clinton Corridor, Hinds County District 3 Supervisor Peggy Calhoun announced yesterday.

The 18-mile corridor is a multi-lane route between Byram at Interstate 55 South extending northwestward to the Norrell Road Interchange at Interstate 20 in Clinton. The corridor will consist of retail, residential and commercial development.

The funds will help connect Interstate 20 to Sam Herring Road and provide access to the John Bell Williams Airport and Industrial Park.

The Hinds County Board of Supervisors voted last year to earmark $2 million for the project out of the $14 million remaining from a 2007 bond issue. The total project's estimated cost is $136 million.
