CHARLESTON -- Mississippi County will need to coordinate with New Madrid County on an upcoming temporary road closure.
Mississippi County Commissioners agreed during their regular meeting Thursday to give Delta Asphalt the green light to do their hot mix paving for the county during the week beginning Oct. 18.
Mississippi County has contracted Delta to lay a 2-inch thick surface on about a quarter mile of County Road 520 to see if it will hold up over time.
About 6-7 miles of the road will need to be closed, however, beginning where State Highway WW becomes County Road 520 as the road enters the county from New Madrid County.
