MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Drivers in downtown Meridian will have some obstructions to deal with starting Monday.
The city of Meridian will be paving multiple roads in downtown. The list includes much of downtown around 8th Street and 22nd Avenue, as well as 6th Street to 21st Avenue. The city says paving will last around one week. Mayor Percy Bland says this is part of the city's major paving project and he hopes people will be patient.
"You asked for us to pave the streets, so we're paving the streets. During this process there may be some inconvenience and we ask the citizens to stay patient with us because you want the streets paved," Bland says.
