The word came down earlier this week that two (2) sections of Corridor X (a.k.a. the future I-22) are scheduled to be opened to the public just in time for the holiday travel season. You can now count on enjoying those 4 lanes of limited highway access to Memphis to Jasper beginning November 14, leaving only 5 more miles to be completed to connect it to I-65.

A road widening project for where the interchange will be installed is already starting, with that final stretch of road to be completed by 2010 according to state transportation officials. The folks in Mississippi seem really excited as evidenced by this story that originally ran in the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal yesterday.
