Froggie's Notes:

- Mississippi's only even 3-digit Interstate, I-220 serves as a partial northwest bypass of the main Jackson area.  It also serves one of the principal industrial areas in the Jackson metro, and as a result truck traffic is fairly heavy.
- A new interchange was recently built at Industrial Dr in order to better serve the industrial area.

Froggie Suggests:

- Widen to 6 lanes plus some auxiliary lanes.
- Consider the feasibility of extending I-220 in both directions, south to I-55 near Byram and east to I-20 near Brandon, to provide a 270-degree loop around Jackson.
- Interchange improvements and ramp additions as needed.
