||Part of Tupelo's Northern Loop opening Friday
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — The city of Tupelo says a section of the Northern Loop will open this week.
A ribbon will be cut at 9 a.m. Friday on the stretch between North Gloster Street and Mount Vernon Road.
The remainder of the project under construction runs from Mount Vernon Road westward across Highway 78 to Coley Road.
The project is part of the fourth phase of the city's Major Thoroughfare Program, which was approved by 85 percent of the voters in May 2006.
