Road Grant Awarded for Kemper

After years of voicing concerns, some residents in Kemper County say their prayers have been answered.

Last September, residents of the Zion community said their request that a main roadway be paved was ignored.

Now the Mississippi Development Authority is awarding a $490,000 grant to pave Zion-Hampton Road.

At this time there is no word on when the work will start. As of last fall there were two businesses and more than a dozen residences located within the first mile of Zion-Hampton Road.
