The DeSoto County Board of Supervisors is proud to announce the completion of phase one of the Nail Road extension. Supervisors held a Ribbon Cutting on August 5, 2021.
The newly completed Nail Road runs east-west from Hacks Cross Road to Polk Lane. It’s part of a plan to relieve congestion on Goodman Road. “With the growth of new businesses and subdivisions in the eastern part of DeSoto County, we realized there would be a need to reduce congestion on Goodman road,” said District 1 Supervisor Jessie Medlin.
The nearly $4.6 Million project was funded entirely by the county. “Much like families plan for big expenditures, the board set aside money every year to pay for this project,” said Board President Mark Gardner. Plans are now in the works to extend Nail Road from Polk to Center Hill.
