LUCEDALE, Miss. (AP) - George County leaders are seeking a more than $2 million federal grant that would help the county complete its largest transportation upgrade in more than 30 years.

Last month, Economic Development and Communication Director Ken Flanagan tells The Mississippi Press (https://bit.ly/1uznbR1 ) the county submitted an application for one of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grants.

If awarded, the grant would help complete a $2.85 million railroad project at the county’s industrial park.
