Road Project Begins at Vicksburg National Military Park

Road work will begin at Vicksburg National Military Park on November 10, 2008, and is expected to be complete by September 2009.  During this time park roads may be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The Federal Highways Administration, the agency administering the project, has awarded a contract to Hemphill Construction Company, Inc, Florence, Mississippi, to complete the work.   The project consists of the rehabilitation of approximately 2.6 miles of the South Loop Tour Road, 4.0 miles of Confederate Avenue, 0.26 miles of Pemberton Avenue, and 0.62 miles of Connecting Avenue. The work includes asphalt pavement overlay and reconstruction, concrete pavement reconstruction, drainage improvements, sidewalk replacement, and other miscellaneous work.

Chief of Maintenance Jerrel Cooper indicated that there may be periods of time that portions of the park tour road will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians.  If you plan on visiting the park you may want to call ahead to check on closures at (601) 636-0583 or visit the park’s website at
