The Willie Morris Parkway will feature some of the nicest streets in Yazoo County, but the road to construction has been filled with bumps and potholes.
The parkway has been hailed as the key to the most significant development opportunities for Yazoo City in decades, but the project has dragged on for so long that some wonder if it will ever really happen.
Mayor McArthur Straughter said a project of this size takes time, but he is convinced it will be well worth the wait.
“This project has been in the works since I took office,” Straughter said. “The pace has been frustratingly slow at times, but this is going to be a great thing for Yazoo City.”
