• Double roundabout project to get underway next week

    OXFORD — The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) is set to begin a double roundabout project at Old Taylor Road in Oxford.

    RoundaboutThe project will construct a double roundabout at the Old Taylor Road and Highway 6 intersection. There will be one roundabout on either side of the Old Taylor Road Bridge over Highway 6.

    The purpose of the project is to relieve congestion on the Old Taylor Road Bridge during peak hours and to provide better access for motorists entering or exiting Highway 6. The dual roundabout layout provides a continuous flow of traffic at each end of the bridge and decreases the delay in time between stops. Another major component to the project will be widening the Old Taylor Road Bridge to accommodate four-lanes of traffic and a protected eight-foot sidewalk for pedestrians.
