The Economic Development Highway Act

The Act, administered by the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), is a program designed for the purpose of assisting political subdivisions with Highway Projects, which encourage private companies to engage in “high economic benefit” projects within their area.

The purpose of this program is to promote industrial and other significant development in the State of Mississippi through the construction and/or improvement of highways in areas that demonstrate actual and immediate potential for the creation, or expansion of major industries or other significant development. The highway or highway segment to be constructed must be necessary to ensure adequate and appropriate access to a proposed company project for the purpose of encouraging its location within a political subdivision.
