Natchez Trace Parkway Road Rehabilitation and Paving Project

August 16, 2023:
A section of the Parkway south of Tupelo, MS closed for road rehabilitation and paving between milepost 239.2 (intersection with MS Hwy 32) and milepost 256.9 (intersection with MS 6/US 278).

Update on December 14, 2023:
The closed section of the Parkway, from milepost 239.2 to milepost 256.9, has reopened to traffic.

Travelers should expect single-lane closures into Summer 2024. Work continues to add an additional layer of asphalt, add permanent striping, and grade the shoulder.

My (Randy Fought at educated guess is that only a couple miles or less of the 17 miles will be single-lane at any given time. When cycling always wear brightly colored clothing and have both front and rear flashing lights on your bicycle.
