CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) - A $53,000 grant has been awarded by the Delta Regional Authority for a marketing and feasibility study along what will become the I-269 corridor.

Christopher Masingill, federal co-chairman of the Delta Regional Authority, tells The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1uwjSrN ) the grant, coupled with gifts from two other entities, will help officials in three counties determine how to best promote the corridor after the interstate is finished.

Jim Flanagan, president and CEO of the DeSoto Economic Development Council, said officials saw the value in DeSoto, Marshall and Tunica counties of working together to make the most of the I-269 corridor. Their economic futures are tied together. The study will best determine how to effectively market the corridor.
