I haven’t been to Flowood in some time, so I made sure to witness the ribbon cutting event at the newly finished East Metro Parkway corridor. Joe McGee Construction did the project (same as the Canton bypass), the 2.5 mile road connects the city to Brandon. I’m especially excited because this eliminates the need to use the interstate! Check out the photos and enjoy the videos (which came out blurry for some reason. Mayor Gary Rhoads and Transportation Commissioner Dick Hall are speaking).
