Mississippi Widening Project

The city has begun work on the widening of Mississippi Avenue near Buckley Air Force Base. The project will widen the stretch of road from Aspen Street (the southern Air Force Base entrance) to Louisiana Avenue from two to four lanes (no private property will be used).

The project also will improve access for cyclists and pedestrians, including widening the sidewalk on the south and west side of Mississippi Avenue, adding a new 12-foot shared use path on the north and east side of Mississippi Avenue, and adding continuous bike facilities from Dunkirk to Aspen streets. New streetlights will be installed as well.

Due to design and right-of-way acquisition delays, the bid for construction has been delayed to winter 2021 or spring 2022. Construction will start after the contractor has been selected.
