Major Repaving/Rehabilitation Project in Northeast MS and Northwest AL

The almost 43-mile-long section of the Parkway is between milepost 293.4 (south of the Tishomingo/Belmont, MS area) and milepost 336.3 (intersection with AL Hwy 20 - north of where the Parkway crosses over the Tennessee River and west of Florence, AL).

The project is being split into three phases/sections.

Phase One

Phase One of the paving project is from milepost 293.4 to milepost 321 (intersection with US 72 near Cherokee, AL). Work began on November 3, 2021.

The closure is near the towns of Belmont, MS, Tishomingo, MS and Cherokee, AL. The Parkway in this section is closed to the public

The Paving Project is now in Phase Two.

Phase Two

Phase Two initially, is Phase One plus 5 more miles from milepost 321 to milepost 326.3. 33 miles are now closed between milepost 293.4 and 326.3. Phase Two began on May 9, 2022.

When the southernmost area is completed from milepost 293.4 to milepost 303 that part of the Parkway will open up. This will hopefully occur around mid-June - a lot depends on the weather and construction delays.

Phase Three

Phase Three will start late summer or fall after paving is completed from milepost 303 to milepost 321 and that part of the Parkway has reopened.

Phase Three will be between milepost 321 (intersection with US 72 near Cherokee, AL) and milepost 336.3 (intersection with AL Hwy 20 - north of where the Parkway crosses over the Tennessee River and west of Florence, AL). The detour around this closure is about 45 miles long.
