GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - The Robert G. “Bunky” Huggins Mississippi Highway Patrol Station is scheduled to open next week in Greenwood,

The $4.24 million structure will replace Troop D’s existing barracks on U.S. 49 South.

Patrol spokesman Trooper Tony Dunn tells The Greenwood Commonwealth (https://bit.ly/1n3AZf0 ) the open is scheduled for July 14.

Dunn says the driver’s license section, which is still at the old barracks, will close on July 15 and reopen at the new location on July 17.

Huggins, a Republican state senator from Greenwood, died of cancer in May of 2006, about a year after the Legislature approved the building of the new station. It was later named in honor of Huggins.

A grand opening will be held later.
