Dirt and bridge work for the entire Mississippi portion of Interstate 269 is finished, and the Mississippi Department of Transportation said the project remains on track for a fall 2018 completion.

Jason Scott, MDOT public information officer, tells The Commercial Appeal the next phase of work involves two paving projects, the largest of which has begun.

Scott says I-269, the largest active MDOT construction project, eventually will form a horseshoe of nearly 60 miles from Hernando to Millington in Shelby County. It will be part of a bypass around Memphis as part of the planned Interstate 69 route from Canada to Mexico.
