A new federal highway bill contains funding for some projects considered significant for east Mississippi.
Central District Highway Commissioner Dick Hall says there is $10 million to upgrade Highway 19 north of Meridian, between Collinsville and the intersection with Highway 492 at House, Miss.
Bids on the initial phase will be awarded in May 2006 and the project is slated for completion in 2010.
Also, an additional $2 million toward construction of the new interchange to the industrial park is included.
