Roads of the Mid-South & West > Highways of the State of Mississippi > Interstate 69, Mississippi
Interstate 69 is the newest interstate highway in Mississippi. This runs from Interstate 55, north of Hernando, to the De Soto/Tunica County Line, north of Tunica.
Future progress on building this highway further in Mississippi has the highways multi-plexing with I-55 to the Mississippi/Tennessee State Line. To the south and west, I-69 will head south along the U.S. Rt. 61 corridor from Tunica to south of Cleveland, via Clarksdale. South of Cleveland it will turn east-west and head into Arkansas, via the to be built Great River Bridge.
The ribbon cutting for the new highways took place on October 3rd, 2006. The 20 miles section is expected to help with the saftey and growth of Northwestern Mississppi.*
