SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - The city of Southaven is giving $3 million to a program to combat congestion on Goodman Road in northwest Mississippi.

The Commercial Appeal reports (https://bit.ly/1plTZZF ) the money comes from Southaven’s share of federal funding from the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement program.

Mayor Darren Musselwhite says Southaven is working with DeSoto County and the four other cities in the county in the $9.5 million traffic congestion-mitigation project through the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

State transportation officials are working to relieve traffic along several roads throughout the county, including the congested Goodman Road and Getwell Road corridors south of Memphis.

Musselwhite says synchronized traffic signals, traffic surveillance cameras and traffic data collectors, along with dynamic message signs, will be placed throughout the county and cities to help with traffic.
