HINDS PARKWAY ILLUSTRATION
The Hinds Parkway has progressed through several phases of planning and construction. The project was conceived through a planning initiative by the Mississippi Department of Economics and Community Development (now the Mississippi Development Authority) as a multi-modal transportation corridor designed to enhance both economic development and energy efficiency. The entire project will consists of an 18-mile, low speed (45 mph) multi-lane parkway style road situated between the Byram Community at I-55 in the southern portion of the Jackson Metropolitan Area, extending northwestward to the Norrell Road Interchange at I-20 in Clinton. The design concept further calls for sidewalks, pedestrian walking trails, and biking trails along with access limitation to insure public safety and enhance levels of service. Segment 2, from Parks Road to Davis Road, of the Parkway is scheduled to be complete in June 2019.
