NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The railroad line between Natchez and Brookhaven will soon receive approximately $14.3 million in repairs and improvements.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2af9Eeq ) that the City of Natchez received word Tuesday that it has been awarded an approximately $10.7 million grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s TIGER Discretionary Grant program. The city has partnered with Natchez Railway Inc. - which is providing approximately $3.6 million in unrequired match funds - for the project.

The work planned for the railway includes rehabilitating and upgrading railroad truss bridges, replacing one failed culvert and installing safety improvements on public grade crossings.
