The DeSoto County Board of Supervisors has joined forces with City Mayors and Alderman, local businesses, and citizens to demand state and federal governments prioritize the widening of I-55, Hwy 51, and Hwy 305.
The Driving DeSoto Plan offers a solution to the traffic tie-ups and congestion we experience every day. It is about more than just convenience. It is a matter of public safety. Nearly every week there is at least one crash on I-55, and often times two or three.
The County and Cities have no say over Interstates and highways. That’s why the Driving DeSoto initiative needs YOUR help to convince state and federal lawmakers to take action. Click on the link sign a petition and learn more about the Driving DeSoto plan.
Driving DeSoto’s mission is to ensure a plan is created that widens the main entry points into DeSoto County. And to make sure the plan is successfully implemented, constructed, and made available to citizens and commuters as soon as possible.
