Interstate 220 Mississippi
Interstate 220 loops around the west side of Jackson between I-20 east of Clinton and I-55 at the city of Ridgeland. U.S. 49 accompanies the freeway northward to Exit 5 as part of a bypass route around central Jackson in conjunction with I-20 east to Pearl. Mostly with four lanes, I-220 travels through older retail and suburban areas west of Jackson State University, by Hawkins Field Industrial Complex, and an array of business parks along the Madison County line.

All of Interstate 220 was opened to traffic by 1981.1 Construction completed in Spring 2004 added a diamond interchange (Exit 3) with Industrial Drive between Clinton Boulevard (Exit 2) and the north split with U.S. 49 at Medgar Evers Boulevard (Exit 5). The $13.4 million project included the addition of auxiliary lanes along I-220 between Exits 2 and 5. The exchange reduced truck traffic and congestion on area local roads by providing direct freeway access for Hawkins Field Airport (HKS) and Hawkins Field Industrial Complex.2
