Jackson, MS - 1979

Interstate 220 opened to traffic north from U.S. 49 to I-55 – 1979 AAA Map of Jackson, MS

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
